Famous quotes containing the word compete:

    The novel can’t compete with cars, the movies, television, and liquor. A guy who’s had a good feed and tanked up on good wine gives his old lady a kiss after supper and his day is over. Finished.
    Louis-Ferdinand Céline (1894–1961)

    The son will run away from the family not at eighteen but at twelve, emancipated by his gluttonous precocity; he will fly not to seek heroic adventures, not to deliver a beautiful prisoner from a tower, not to immortalize a garret with sublime thoughts, but to found a business, to enrich himself and to compete with his infamous papa.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–67)

    No doubt you were extremely beautiful as a young girl, but your youth could never compete with your age now.
    Charlie Chaplin (1889–1977)
