Famous quotes containing the word bills:
“Our checks are pale. Our wallets are invalids.

and the cat. Love rises like bread as we go bust.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Listen to me. You come into this town, and you think youre headed somewhere, dont you? You think youre gonna get there with a gun, but youre not. Get me. You know why, cause you got thousand dollar bills pasted right across your eyes. And someday youre gonna stumble and fall down in the gutter, right where the horses have been standin, right where you belong.”
—Ben Hecht (18931964)
