Famous quotes containing the words time and/or real:

    Alicia Huberman: Look, I’ll make it easy for you. The time has come when you must tell me that you have a wife and two adorable children, and this madness between us can’t go on any longer.
    T.R. Devlin: I bet you’ve heard that line often enough.
    Alicia: Right below the belt every time. Oh that isn’t fair, Dev.
    Devlin: Skip it. We have other things to talk about. We have a job.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    That is the real pivot of all bourgeois consciousness in all countries: fear and hate of the instinctive, intuitional, procreative body in man or woman. But of course this fear and hate had to take on a righteous appearance, so it became moral, said that the instincts, intuitions and all the activities of the procreative body were evil, and promised a reward for their suppression. That is the great clue to bourgeois psychology: the reward business.
