Famous quotes containing the words over and/or take:

    Clearly the most unfortunate people are those who must do the same thing over and over again, every minute, or perhaps twenty to the minute. They deserve the shortest hours and the highest pay.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    Calms appear, when Storms are past;
    Love will have his Hour at last:
    Nature is my kindly Care;
    Mars destroys, and I repair;
    Take me, take me, while you may,
    Venus comes not ev’ry Day.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)
