Big Ten

Famous quotes containing the words big and/or ten:

    My first big mistake was made when, in a moment of weakness, I consented to learn the game; for a man who can frankly say “I do not play bridge” is allowed to go over in the corner and run the pianola by himself, while the poor neophyte, no matter how much he may protest that he isn’t “at all a good player, in fact I’m perfectly rotten,” is never believed, but dragged into a game where it is discovered, too late, that he spoke the truth.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    You may persevere in obscurity for ten years in your study, but the day you make a name for yourself, the whole world will acclaim you.
    Chinese proverb.
