Famous quotes containing the word designed:

    Oh he
    Comes designed to my love to steal not her tide raking
    Wound, nor her riding high, nor her eyes, nor kindled hair,
    But her faith....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    They are a very decent generous lot of people out here and they don’t expect you to listen.... It’s the secret of social ease in this country. They talk entirely for their own pleasure. Nothing they say is designed to be heard.
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)

    Haggerty: Girls! Girls! Girls! Be careful of my hats.
    Chorus Girl: Well, we gotta get down on the stage.
    Haggerty: I don’t care. I won’t allow you to ruin them.
    Dressing Room Matron: See, I told you. They were too high and too wide.
    Haggerty: Well, Big Woman, I designed the costumes for the show, not the doors for the theater.
    Dressing Room Matron: I know that. If you had, they’d have been done in lavender.
    James Gleason (1886–1959)
