Call Letters

Famous quotes containing the words call and/or letters:

    Throughout my life, I have seen narrow-shouldered men, without a single exception, committing innumerable stupid acts, brutalizing their fellows and perverting souls by all means. They call the motive for their actions fame.

    Helene: He lived to be old.
    Harvey: Even so, how many letters did he write?
    Helene: Oh, I don’t know exactly. Thousands.
    Harvey: I can’t remember when I even wrote one.
    Helene: You should try.
    Harvey: It’s too late. I wouldn’t know where to send it.
