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)

    God bless the physician who warms the speculum or holds your hand and looks into your eyes. Perhaps one subtext of the health care debate is a yen to be treated like a whole person, not just an eye, an ear, a nose or a throat. A yen to be human again, on the part of patient and doctor alike.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    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)
