Famous quotes containing the words game, break and/or bank:
“My first big mistake was made when, in a moment of weakness, I consented to learn the game; for a man who can frankly say I do not play bridge is allowed to go over in the corner and run the pianola by himself, while the poor neophyte, no matter how much he may protest that he isnt at all a good player, in fact Im perfectly rotten, is never believed, but dragged into a game where it is discovered, too late, that he spoke the truth.”
—Robert Benchley (18891945)
“Without poets, without artists, men would soon weary of natures monotony. The sublime idea men have of the universe would collapse with dizzying speed. The order which we find in nature, and which is only an effect of art, would at once vanish. Everything would break up in chaos. There would be no seasons, no civilization, no thought, no humanity; even life would give way, and the impotent void would reign everywhere.”
—Guillaume Apollinaire (18801918)
“The English language is like a broad river on whose bank a few patient anglers are sitting, while, higher up, the stream is being polluted by a string of refuse-barges tipping out their muck.”
—Cyril Connolly (19031974)
