Famous quotes containing the words young and/or roy:

    I am unbalanced but I am not mad with snow.
    I am mad the way young girls are mad,
    with an offering, an offering . . .
    I burn the way money burns.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched seabeams glitter in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die.
    David Webb Peoples, U.S. screenwriter, and Ridley Scott. Roy Batty, Blade Runner, final words before dying—as an android he had a built-in life span that expired (1982)
