Days

Famous quotes containing the word days:

    Nights of storm, days of mist, without end;
    Sad days when the sun
    Shone in vain: old griefs and griefs
    Not yet begun.
    Edward Thomas (1878–1917)

    Go three days without reading and your speech will become tasteless.
    Chinese proverb.

    It is possible that the telephone has been responsible for more business inefficiency than any other agency except laudanum.... In the old days when you wanted to get in touch with a man you wrote a note, sprinkled it with sand, and gave it to a man on horseback. It probably was delivered within half an hour, depending on how big a lunch the horse had had. But in these busy days of rush-rush-rush, it is sometimes a week before you can catch your man on the telephone.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
