Famous quotes containing the words benton, thomas and/or hart:

    All my life I’ve felt like somebody’s wife, or somebody’s mother or somebody’s daughter. Even all the time we were together, I never knew who I was. And that’s why I had to go away. And in California, I think I found myself.
    —Robert Benton (b. 1932)

    I would not fear the devil in the loin
    Nor the outspoken grave.
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    I’m ashamed of myself and this magazine too. The sloppy, slovenly notion that everybody’s busy doing bigger things. Well, there just isn’t anything bigger than beating down the complacence of essentially decent people about prejudice. Yes, I’m ashamed of myself.
    —Moss Hart (1904–1961)
