Days

Famous quotes containing the word days:

    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)

    In a few days I’ll have lived one score and three days in this vale of tears. On I plod—always bored, often drunk, doing no penance for my faults—rather do I become more tolerant of myself from day to day, hardening my crystal heart with blasphemous humor and shunning only toothpicks, pathos, and poverty as being the three unforgivable things in life.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    The days to come are a watershed.
    You have to improve your portrait of God
    To make it plain.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
