Famous quotes containing the word couple:
“... you can have a couple of seconds to rest in. I mean seconds. You have about two seconds to wait while the blanker is on the felt drawing the moisture out. You can stand and relax those two secondsthree seconds at most. You wish you didnt have to work in a factory. When its all you know what to do, thats what you do.”
—Grace Clements, U.S. factory worker. As quoted in Working, book 5, by Studs Terkel (1973)
“All Presidents start out to run a crusade but after a couple of years they find they are running something less heroic and much more intractable: namely the presidency. The people are well cured by then of election fever, during which they think they are choosing Moses. In the third year, they look on the man as a sinner and a bumbler and begin to poke around for rumours of another Messiah.”
—Alistair Cooke (b. 1908)
“Said an ape as he swung by his tail
To his offspring both female and male,
From your children, my dears,
In a couple of years
May evolve a professor at Yale.”
