Famous quotes containing the words spending and/or compulsive:

    I have been spending my first night in an American “summer hotel,” and I despair of the Republic! Such dreariness, such whining callow women, such utter absence of the amenities, such crass food, crass manners, crass landscape!... What a horror it is for a whole nation to be developing without a sense of beauty, and eating bananas for breakfast.
    Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

    Like to the Pontic Sea,
    Whose icy current and compulsive course
    Ne’er knows retiring ebb, but keeps due on
    To the Propontic and the Hellespont,
    Even so my bloody thoughts with violent pace
    Shall ne’er look back, ne’er ebb to humble love,
    Till that a capable and wide revenge
    Swallow them up.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
