Famous quotes containing the word sentences:

    Truth is simply a compliment paid to sentences seen to be paying their way.
    Richard Rorty (b. 1931)

    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    What I expect from my male friends is that they are polite and clean. What I expect from my female friends is unconditional love, the ability to finish my sentences for me when I am sobbing, a complete and total willingness to pour their hearts out to me, and the ability to tell me why the meat thermometer isn’t supposed to touch the bone.
    Anna Quindlen (20th century)
