Famous quotes containing the words top and/or films:

    Your top has sunk too low,
    Your base has spread too wide,
    For you to roll one stone
    Down if you tried.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface: of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.
    Andy Warhol (c. 1928–1987)
