Famous quotes containing the word ready:

    There is also something excellent in every audience,—the capacity of virtue. They are ready to be beatified.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I just want to tell you all how happy I am to be back in the studio, making a picture again! You don’t know much I’ve missed all of you.... You see, this is my life. It always will be! There’s nothing else. Just us, and the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark. All right, Mr. de Mille. I’m ready for my closeup.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)

    Face troubles from their birth, for ‘tis too late to cure
    When long delay has given the evil strength.
    Haste then; postpone not to the coming hour: tomorrow
    He’ll be less ready who’s not ready now.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
