Bar

Famous quotes containing the word bar:

    The bar is the male kingdom. For centuries it was the bastion of male privilege, the gathering place for men away from their women, a place where men could go to freely indulge in The Bull Session ... the release of the guilty anxiety of the oppressor class.
    Shulamith Firestone (b. 1945)

    ‘Yes; quaint and curious war is!
    You shoot a fellow down
    You’d treat if met where any bar is,
    Or help to half-a-crown.’
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Hemingway is terribly limited. His technique is good for short stories, for people who meet once in a bar very late at night, but do not enter into relations. But not for the novel.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
