Days

Famous quotes containing the word days:

    The head must bow, and the back will have to bend,
    Wherever the darkey may go;
    A few more days, and the trouble all will end,
    In the field where the sugar-canes grow.
    A few more days for to tote the weary load,—
    No matter, ‘t will never be light;
    A few more days till we totter on the road:—
    Then my old Kentucky home, good-night!
    Stephen Collins Foster (1826–1884)

    In the old days villains had moustaches and kicked the dog. Audiences are smarter today. They don’t want their villain to be thrown at them with green limelight on his face. They want an ordinary human being with failings.
    Alfred Hitchcock (1899–1980)

    After which you led me to water
    And bade me drink, which I did, owing to your kindness.
    You would not let me out for two days and three nights,
    Bringing me books bound in wild thyme and scented wild grasses
    As if reading had any interest for me ...
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
