Famous quotes containing the words reds and/or season:

    Holly Golightly: You know those days when you’ve got the mean reds?
    Paul: The mean reds? You mean like the blues?
    Holly Golightly: No, the blues are because you’re getting fat or maybe it’s been raining too long. You’re just sad, that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what you’re afraid of.
    George Axelrod (b. 1922)

    At Christmas I no more desire a rose
    Than wish a snow in May’s new-fangled shows,
    But like of each thing that in season grows.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
