Famous quotes containing the words post, playing and/or career:

    To the old saying that man built the house but woman made of it a “home” might be added the modern supplement that woman accepted cooking as a chore but man has made of it a recreation.
    —Emily Post (1873–1960)

    Give me mine angle, we’ll to th’ river; there,
    My music playing far off, I will betray
    Tawny-finned fishes; my bended hook shall pierce
    Their slimy jaws; and as I draw them up,
    I’ll think them every one an Antony,
    And say, “Ah, ha! y’ are caught.”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    My ambition in life: to become successful enough to resume my career as a neurasthenic.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
