Famous quotes containing the word fired:

    And you’re too fired up to go to sleep, you sit at the kitchen table. It’s really late, it’s really quiet, you’re tired. Don’t wanna go to bed, though. Going to bed means this was the day. This Feb. 12, this Aug. 3, this Nov. 20 is over and you’re tired and you made some money but it didn’t happen, nothing happened. You got through it and a whole day of your life is over. And all it is—is time to go to bed.
    Claudia Shear, U.S. author. New York Times, p. A21 (September 29, 1993)

    See where she comes, and smell how all the street,
    Breathes vineyards and pomegranates: oh, how sweet!
    As a fired altar is each stone,
    Perspiring pounded cinnamon.
    The phoenix-nest,
    Built up of odours, burneth in her breast.
    Who therein would not consume
    His soul to ash-heaps in that rich perfume,
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    I worked as a waitress till I was fired because I dumped a cup of hot coffee in the lap of a half-drunk guy who was pinching my butt.
    Juli Loesch (b. c. 1953)
