Famous quotes containing the words dance and/or concert:

    The city is all right. To live in one
    Is to be civilized, stay up and read
    Or sing and dance all night and see sunrise
    By waiting up instead of getting up.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

On some shining tomorrow a psychoanalyst may be put into the box to prove that perjury is simply a compulsion neurosis, like beating time with the foot at a concert or counting the lampposts along the highway.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
