Famous quotes containing the word mayer:

    I had a long day’s work, starting at eight in the morning and ending after nine at night, but in those days [we] ... did not think of our day in terms of hours. We liked our work, we were proud to do it well, and I am afraid that we were very, very happy.
    —Louie Mayer (b. c. 1914)
