Famous quotes containing the word peak:

    You know, I often thought that the gangster and the artist are the same in the eyes of the masses. They’re admired and hero-worshipped but there is always present underlying desire to see them destroyed at the peak of their glory.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
