Famous quotes containing the word hughes:

    It is impossible to think of Howard Hughes without seeing the apparently bottomless gulf between what we say we want and what we do want, between what we officially admire and secretly desire, between, in the largest sense, the people we marry and the people we love. In a nation which increasingly appears to prize social virtues, Howard Hughes remains not merely antisocial but grandly, brilliantly, surpassingly, asocial. He is the last private man, the dream we no longer admit.
    Joan Didion (b. 1934)

    I was so sick last night I
    Didn’t hardly know my mind.
    So sick last night I
    Didn’t know my mind.
    I drunk some bad licker that
    Almost made me blind.
    —Langston Hughes (1902–1967)

    Babies and gin and church
    And women and Sunday
    All mixed with dimes and
    Dollars and clean spittoons
    And house rent to pay.
    —Langston Hughes (1902–1967)
