Famous quotes containing the word stage:

    I must ... warn my readers that my attacks are directed against themselves, not against my stage figures.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    In the right stage of the weather a pond fires its evening gun with great regularity.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I know that each stage is not going to last forever. I used to think that when he was little. Whenever he was in a bad stage I thought that he was going to be like that for the rest of his life and that I’d better do something to shape him up. When he was in a good state, I thought he was going to be a perfect child and I would never have to worry; he was always going to stay that way.
    —Anonymous Parent of An Eight-Year-Old. As quoted in Between Generations by Ellen Galinsky, ch. 4 (1981)
