Famous quotes containing the words dirty and/or jobs:

    But the dirty little coward that shot Mister Howard,
    He laid poor Jesse in his grave.
    Unknown. Jesse James (l. Chorus)

    The problem is simply this: no one can feel like CEO of his or her life in the presence of the people who toilet trained her and spanked him when he was naughty. We may have become Masters of the Universe, accustomed to giving life and taking it away, casually ordering people into battle or out of their jobs . . . and yet we may still dirty our diapers at the sound of our mommy’s whimper or our daddy’s growl.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
