Famous quotes containing the word affair:
“We must get back into relation, vivid and nourishing relation to the cosmos and the universe. The way is through daily ritual, and is an affair of the individual and the household, a ritual of dawn and noon and sunset, the ritual of the kindling fire and pouring water, the ritual of the first breath, and the last.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“An illicit love affair seems sweetly old-fashioned in the age of one night stands and orgies.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
“Though the Jazz Age continued it became less and less an affair of youth. The sequel was like a childrens party taken over by the elders.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
