Famous quotes containing the word years:

    It was almost two years ago, while awaiting the imminent birth of my second child, that I decided to start working part-time. This would have been unthinkable to me when I was younger. At twenty-five I should have worn a big red A on my chest; it would have stood for ambition, an ambition so brazen and burning that it would have reduced Hester Prynne’s transgression to pale pink.
    Anna Quindlen (20th century)

    Porter: O.K., O.K., you win. I’ll marry you. How ‘bout it?
    Lora May: Thanks. For nuthin’.
    Porter: Now what kind of an answer is that?
    Lora May: I don’t know. I just felt like it, that’s all.
    Porter: We’ll do all right, kid. We’re startin’ out where it takes most marriages years to get.
    Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909–1993)

    There are those who say to you—we are rushing this issue of civil rights. I say we are 172 years late.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
