Friday Night Lights - A Town

Famous quotes containing the words friday night, town, lights, night and/or friday:

    This is the only “wet” community in a wide area, and is the rendezvous of cow hands seeking to break the monotony of chuck wagon food and range life. Friday night is the “big time” for local cowboys, and consequently the calaboose is called the “Friday night jail.”
    —Administration in the State of Texa, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    From whatever you wish to know and measure you must take your leave, at least for a time. Only when you have left the town can you see how high its towers rise above the houses.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    So the 20th Century—so
    whizzed the Limited—roared by and left
    three men, still hungry on the tracks, ploddingly
    watching the tail lights wizen and converge, slip-
    ping gimleted and neatly out of sight.
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    I have placed slippers very carefully under my bed, only to have them crawl out during the night to a position where I will step into them the wrong way round when leaping out of bed to answer the telephone.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    His [O.J. Simpson’s] supporters lined the freeway to cheer him on Friday and commentators talked about his tragedy. Did those people see the photographs of the crime scene and the great blackening pools of blood seeping into the sidewalk? Did battered women watch all this on television and realize more vividly than ever before that their lives were cheap and their pain inconsequential?
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
