Famous quotes containing the word yen:

    Your yen two wol slee me sodenly,
    I may the beaute of hem not sustene,
    So woundeth hit through-out my herte kene.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    Diamond, the only trouble with you is you’d like to be me. You’d like to have my organization, my influence, my fix. You can’t; that’s impossible. You think it’s money; it’s not. It’s personality. You haven’t got it, Lieutenant. You’re a cop. Slow. Steady. Intelligent. With a bad temper, and a gun under your arm. And with a big yen for a girl he can’t have. First is first, and second is nobody.
    Philip Yordan (b. 1913)

    Night City was like a deranged experiment in Social Darwinism, designed by a bored researcher who kept one thumb permanently on the fast-forward button. Stop hustling and you sank without a trace, but move a little too swiftly and you’d break the fragile surface tension of the black market; either way, you were gone ... though heart or lungs or kidneys might survive in the service of some stranger with New Yen for the clinic tanks.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
