Famous quotes containing the word play:
“Come play with me;
Why should you run
Through the shaking tree
As though Id a gun
To strike you dead?”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“For sometimes it is shown to me in dreams
The Eden that all wish to recreate
Out of their living, from their favourite times;
The miraculous play where all their dead take part,
Once more articulate....”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
“We all know that the theater and every play that comes to Broadway have within themselves, like the human being, the seed of self-destruction and the certainty of death. The thing is to see how long the theater, the play, and the human being can last in spite of themselves.”
—James Thurber (18941961)
