Famous quotes containing the words ward and/or barbara:

    There were times when I felt that I could bear no more. It was the Emergency Ward which almost broke me. I stood one night beside a man who had been caught in a flywheel, and whose body felt like jelly. I wanted him to die quickly, not to go on breathing. Oh, stop breathing. I can’t stand it. Die and stop suffering. I can’t stand it. I can’t.
    Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958)

    Men make clothes for the women they’d like to be with or—in most cases—the women they’d like to be.
    Robert Altman, U.S. director, screenwriter, and Barbara Shulgasser. Jack Lowenthal (Rupert Everett)
