Famous quotes containing the word playing:

    Sometimes, because of its immediacy, television produces a kind of electronic parable. Berlin, for instance, on the day the Wall was opened. Rostropovich was playing his cello by the Wall that no longer cast a shadow, and a million East Berliners were thronging to the West to shop with an allowance given them by West German banks! At that moment the whole world saw how materialism had lost its awesome historic power and become a shopping list.
    John Berger (b. 1926)

    I’m fed up! Fed up playing Greek chorus to your rehearsed nightmare!
    Samuel Fuller (b. 1911)

    Playing “bop” is like playing Scrabble with all the vowels missing.
    Duke Ellington (1899–1974)
