Famous quotes containing the word stay:

    All this stuff you heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans, traditionally, love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle.... Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That’s why Americans have never lost—and will never lose—a war, because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.
    Francis Ford Coppola (b. 1939)

    Do you want to have an easy life? Then always stay with the herd and lose yourself in the herd.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    I long for truth, and yet
    I cannot stay from that
    My better self disowns,
    For a man’s attention
    Brings such satisfaction
    To the craving in my bones.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
