Famous quotes containing the word nerves:

    “My nerves are bad to-night. Yes, bad. Stay with me.
    Speak to me. Why do you never speak. Speak.
    What are you thinking of? What thinking? What?
    I never know what are thinking. Think.”
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Cap off
    and then what? The brains as
    helpless as oysters in a pint container,
    the nerves like phone wires.
    God, take care, take infinite care
    with the tumor lest it spread like grease.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The style, which is something I take to heart, is getting on my nerves horribly. It frustrates and torments me. I have days when I am sick about it and nights when it gives me a fever. The more I go at it the more I find myself incapable of conveying the Idea.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)
