Famous quotes containing the word benchley:

    A man may take care of a furnace for twenty-five years and still forget to duck his head when he starts going down the cellar stairs.
    —Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    I can get dressed earlier in the evening with every intention of going to a dance at midnight, but somehow after the theatre the thing to do seems to be either to go to bed or sit around somewhere. It doesn’t seem possible that somewhere people can be expecting you at an hour like that.
    —Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    The knocking out of a pipe can be made almost as important as the smoking of it, especially if there are nervous people in the room. A good, smart knock of a pipe against a tin wastebasket and you will have a neurasthenic out of his chair and into the window sash in no time.
    —Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
