Famous quotes containing the words returning and/or performers:

    The flowers anew, returning seasons bring!
    But beauty faded has no second spring.
    Ambrose Philips (1674–1749)

    The reason I’m in this business, I assume all performers are—it’s “Look at me, Ma!” It’s acceptance, you know—”Look at me, Ma, look at me, Ma, look at me, Ma.” And if your mother watches, you’ll show off till you’re exhausted; but if your mother goes, Ptshew!
    Lenny Bruce (1925–1966)
