Famous quotes containing the word spill:

    Never miss an opportunity to allow a child to do something she can and wants to on her own. Sometimes we’re in too much of a rush—and she might spill something, or do it wrong. But whenever possible she needs to learn, error by error, lesson by lesson, to do better. And the more she is able to learn by herself the more she gets the message that she’s a kid who can.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    Didn’t spill a drop. The shakes are gone just because of a piece of music. Until they played that piece, I, I forgot how I got into this thing. Keep on playin’ it. I don’t think I’ll ever forget again.
    Jules Furthman (1888–1960)

    A good upbringing means not that you won’t spill sauce on the tablecloth, but that you won’t notice it when someone else does.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
