Big Break III

Famous quotes containing the words big, break and/or iii:

    the small town big shot who, although very short,
    who although with a cigarette-stained mustache,
    who although famous for lobster on the rocks,
    left me here, nubkin, sucking in my vodka
    and emphysema cigarettes, unable to walk
    your walks, unable to write your writes.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    She thinks of the 4 a.m. lonelinesses that have folded
    her up like death, discordant, without logical and
    beautiful conclusion. Her teeth break off at the edges.
    She would speak.
    Joy Harjo (b. 1951)

    Napoleon wanted to turn Paris into Rome under the Caesars, only with louder music and more marble. And it was done. His architects gave him the Arc de Triomphe and the Madeleine. His nephew Napoleon III wanted to turn Paris into Rome with Versailles piled on top, and it was done. His architects gave him the Paris Opera, an addition to the Louvre, and miles of new boulevards.
    Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)
