Famous quotes containing the words tons and/or long:

    A man shall perhaps rush by and trample down plants as high as his head, and cannot be said to know that they exist, though he may have cut many tons of them, littered his stables with them, and fed them to his cattle for years. Yet, if he ever favorably attends to them, he may be overcome by their beauty.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Turning one’s novel into a movie script is rather like making a series of sketches for a painting that has long ago been finished and framed.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
