Famous quotes containing the word throw:

    A big leather-bound volume makes an ideal razorstrap. A thin book is useful to stick under a table with a broken caster to steady it. A large, flat atlas can be used to cover a window with a broken pane. And a thick, old-fashioned heavy book with a clasp is the finest thing in the world to throw at a noisy cat.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Johnny Clay: You like money. You got a great big dollar sign there where most women have a heart. So play it smart. Stay in character and you’ll have money. Plenty of it. George’ll have it and he’ll blow it on you. Probably buy himself a five-cent cigar.
    Sherry Peatty: You don’t know me very well, Johnny. I wouldn’t think of letting George throw his money away on cigars.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)

    It were sad to gaze on the blessèd and no man I loved of old there;
    I throw down the chain of small stones! when life in my body has ceased,
    I will go to Caoilte, and Conan, and Bran, Sceolan, Lomair,
    And dwell in the house of the Fenians, be they in flames or at feast.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
