Famous quotes containing the words airport and/or bien:

    Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)

    “Eh Bien you like this sacred pig of a country?” asked Marco.
    “Why not? I like it anywhere. It’s all the same, in France you are paid badly and live well; here you are paid well and live badly.”
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
