Famous quotes containing the words boss and/or dear:

    When you overpay small people you frighten them. They know that their merits or activities entitle them to no such sums as they are receiving. As a result their boss soars out of economic into magic significance. He becomes a source of blessings rather than wages. Criticism is sacrilege, doubt is heresy.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    Oh my swan, my drudge, my dear wooly rose,
    even a notary would notarize our bed
    as you knead me and I rise like bread.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
