Famous quotes containing the word chase:

    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    I’ve really never accepted the idea that a woman can’t do whatever the hell it is she wants.
    —Sylvia Chase (b. 1938)

    It’s not a field, I think, for people who need to have success every day: if you can’t live with a nightly sort of disaster, you should get out. I wouldn’t describe myself as lacking in confidence, but I would just say that ... the ghosts you chase you never catch.
    John Malkovich (b. 1953)
