Famous quotes containing the words break up and/or break:

    If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Break up the printing presses and you break up rebellion.
    Dudley Nichols, U.S. screenwriter. Jean Renoir. Mayor (Thurston Hall)

    Many people now believe that if fathers are more involved in raising children than they were, children and sons in particular will learn that men can be warm and supportive of others as well as be high achievers. Thus, fathers’ involvement may be beneficial not because it will help support traditional male roles, but because it will help break them down.
    Joseph H. Pleck (20th century)

    One way to do it might be by making the scenery penetrate the automobile. A polished black sedan was a good subject, especially if parked at the intersection of a tree-bordered street and one of those heavyish spring skies whose bloated gray clouds and amoeba-shaped blotches of blue seem more physical than the reticent elms and effusive pavement. Now break the body of the car into separate curves and panels; then put it together in terms of reflections.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
