Famous quotes containing the words list of, killers and/or list:

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    we want to remember when you were
    money in Massachusetts and yet were wild and rude
    and killers. We want our killers dressed in black
    like grease for we are sick of writing checks,
    putting on our socks and working in the little boxes
    we call the office.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Weigh what loss your honor may sustain
    If with too credent ear you list his songs,
    Or lose your heart, or your chaste treasure open
    To his unmastered importunity.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
