Famous quotes containing the word give:

    For a painter, the Mecca of the world, for study, for inspiration and for living is here on this star called Paris. Just look at it, no wonder so many artists have come here and called it home. Brother, if you can’t paint in Paris, you’d better give up and marry the boss’s daughter.
    Alan Jay Lerner (1918–1986)

    We grew up founding our dreams on the infinite promise of American advertising. I still believe that one can learn to play the piano by mail and that mud will give you a perfect complexion.
    Zelda Fitzgerald (1900–1948)

    Most people know more as they get older:
    I give all that the cold shoulder.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
