Famous quotes containing the words company and/or watch:

    All I can tell you with certainty is that I, for one, have no self, and that I am unwilling or unable to perpetrate upon myself the joke of a self.... What I have instead is a variety of impersonations I can do, and not only of myself—a troupe of players that I have internalised, a permanent company of actors that I can call upon when a self is required.... I am a theater and nothing more than a theater.
    Philip Roth (b. 1933)

    The mother may be doing ninety percent of the disciplining, but the father still must have a full-time acceptance of all the children. He never must say, “Get these kids out of here; I’m trying to watch TV.” If he ever does start saying this, he is liable to see one of his kids on the six o’clock news.
    Bill Cosby (20th century)
