Famous quotes containing the words men, games, squash, pan and/or american:

    The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    As long as lightly all their livelong sessions,
    Like a yardful of schoolboys out at recess
    Before their plays and games were organized,
    They yelling mix tag, hide-and-seek, hopscotch,
    And leapfrog in each other’s way all’s well.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I am filling the room
    with the words from my pen.
    Words leak out of it like a miscarriage.
    I am zinging words out into the air
    and they come back like squash balls.
    Yet there is silence.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I can’t accept “our nervous age,” since mankind has been nervous during every age. Whoever fears nervousness should turn into a sturgeon or smelt; if a sturgeon makes a stupid mistake, it can only be one: to end up on a hook, and then in a pan in a pastry shell.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    The star is the ultimate American verification of Jean Jacques Rousseau’s Emile. His mere existence proves the perfectability of any man or woman. Oh wonderful pliability of human nature, in a society where anyone can become a celebrity! And where any celebrity ... may become a star!
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
