Famous quotes containing the word play:
“Johnny Clay: You like money. You got a great big dollar sign there where most women have a heart. So play it smart. Stay in character and youll have money. Plenty of it. Georgell have it and hell blow it on you. Probably buy himself a five-cent cigar.
Sherry Peatty: You dont know me very well, Johnny. I wouldnt think of letting George throw his money away on cigars.”
—Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
“The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“I bowd not to thy image for succession,
Nor bound thy bow to shoot reformed kindness,
Thy plays of hope and fear were my confession,
The spectacles to my life was thy blindness;
But Cupid now farewell, I will go play me,
With thoughts that please me less and less betray me.”
—Fulke Greville (15541628)
