Famous quotes containing the word ready:

    Suspense is one of the most delightful feelings that you can have! It is the feeling you get, when you have sat down to dinner, and the cook sends word that “it won’t be ready for another hour.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    His mind resembled the vast amphitheatre, the Colis├Žum at Rome. In the centre stood his judgement, which, like a mighty gladiator, combated those apprehensions that, like the wild beasts of the Arena, were all around the cells, ready to be let out upon him. After a conflict, he drove them back into their dens; but not killing them, they were still assailing him.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    You are all alike, you respectable people. You can’t tell me the bursting strain of a ten-inch gun, which is a very simple matter; but you all think you can tell me the bursting strain of a man under temptation. You daren’t handle high explosives; but you’re all ready to handle honesty and truth and justice and the whole duty of man, and kill one another at that game. What a country! What a world!
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
