Famous quotes containing the words stand up and/or stand:

    Things happen to us, all the time. It was like that for a century, and it is again. It’s not like here: People always do things, because you are born with it; you are brought up in this spirit, the active approach to life: “Stand up and go.” We were not. We were always passive in our lives.
    Natasha Dudinska (b. c. 1967)

    To stand up on the stage is to say to many people: “Look at me.” How can you do that without speaking the only truth you know? There is no such thing as an uncommitted actor.
    Judith Malina (b. 1926)

    Don’t just stand there, idiot. Call a doctor, and then help me find a nose.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)
