Famous quotes containing the word practice:

    My paternal grandmother would not light a fire on the Sabbath and piled all Sunday’s washing-up in a bucket, to be dealt with on Monday morning, because the Sabbath was a day of rest—a practice that made my paternal grandfather, the village atheist, as mad as fire. Nevertheless, he willed five quid to the minister, just to be on the safe side.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    I am out of practice at living.
    You are as brave as a motorcycle.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
