Famous quotes containing the word cast:

    It was always the work that was the gyroscope in my life. I don’t know who could have lived with me. As an architect you’re absolutely devoured. A woman’s cast in a lot of roles and a man isn’t. I couldn’t be an architect and be a wife and mother.
    Eleanore Kendall Pettersen (b. 1916)

    By the time a person has achieved years adequate for choosing a direction, the die is cast and the moment has long since passed which determined the future.
    Zelda Fitzgerald (1900–1948)

    When such as I cast out remorse
    So great a sweetness flows into the breast
    We must laugh and we must sing,
    We are blest by everything,
    Everything we look upon is blest.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
