Famous quotes containing the word affair:
“Time, which shows so vacant, indivisible, and divine in its coming, is slit and peddled into trifles and tatters. A door is to be painted, a lock to be repaired.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)

—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“An illicit love affair seems sweetly old-fashioned in the age of one night stands and orgies.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
