Famous quotes containing the word agent:

    The agent never receipts his bill, puts his hat on and bows himself out. He stays around forever, not only for as long as you can write anything that anyone will buy, but as long as anyone will buy any portion of any right to anything that you ever did write. He just takes ten per cent of your life.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Caution is the confidential agent of selfishness.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
