Famous quotes containing the word run:

    It’s no good comin’ to me. I can’t help you. Nobody can help you. I don’t want any help. I just want to ... I just want to sit down and rest. I can’t ... run ... anymore.
    Jo Eisinger, and Jules Dassin. Anna O’Leary (Maureen Delaney)

    It is said that some Western steamers can run on a heavy dew, whence we can imagine what a canoe may do.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    My first big mistake was made when, in a moment of weakness, I consented to learn the game; for a man who can frankly say “I do not play bridge” is allowed to go over in the corner and run the pianola by himself, while the poor neophyte, no matter how much he may protest that he isn’t “at all a good player, in fact I’m perfectly rotten,” is never believed, but dragged into a game where it is discovered, too late, that he spoke the truth.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
