Famous quotes containing the words edgar, rice and/or burroughs:

    Come Vitus, are we men, or are we children? Of what use are all these melodramatic gestures? You say your soul was killed, and that you have been dead all these years. And what of me? Did we not both die here in Marmaros fifteen years ago? Are we any the less victims of the war than those whose bodies were torn asunder? Are we not both the living dead?
    Peter Ruric, and Edgar G. Ulmer. Hjalmar Poelzig (Boris Karloff)

    The arbitrary division of one’s life into weeks and days and hours seemed, on the whole, useless. There was but one day for the men, and that was pay day, and one for the women, and that was rent day. As for the children, every day was theirs, just as it should be in every corner of the world.
    —Alice Caldwell Rice (1870–1942)

    Me Tarzan, you Jane.
    —Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875–1950)
