Famous quotes containing the words emeric pressburger and/or pressburger:

    Well, I never would have believed that grown up men could behave like spiteful little schoolboys. Have I said something to annoy you? Then I forget, anything reasonable annoys you.
    Emeric Pressburger (1902–1988)

    Our Germany’s dead. However hard this may be for some of us older people, it’s a blessing for our children. Our children grew up against new backgrounds, new horizons. And they are free. Free to grow up as children. Free to run and to laugh without being forced into uniforms. Without being forced to march up and down streets, singing battle songs.
