Famous quotes containing the words performances and/or met:

    At one of the later performances you asked why they called it a “miracle,”
    Since nothing ever happened. That, of course, was the miracle
    But you wanted to know why so much action took on so much life
    And still managed to remain itself, aloof, smiling and courteous.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    It’s not a slam at you when people are rude—it’s a slam at the people they’ve met before.
