Famous quotes containing the words arthur l, prize, day and/or arthur:

    Look at your lake, Christine. You’ll love it here, when you get used to the dark. And you’ll love the dark, too. It’s friendly. And peaceful. It brings rest and relief from pain. It’s right under the Opera. The music comes down and the darkness distills it, cleanses it of the suffering that made it, then it’s all beauty and life here is like a resurrection.
    Eric Taylor, and Leroux. Arthur Lubin. Erique Claudin (Claude Rains)

    Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)

    Never put off till to-morrow what you can do day after to-morrow just as well.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If the sea were ink
    For the words of my Lord,
    the sea would be spent before the Words of my Lord are spent.
