Famous quotes containing the words short and/or world:

    A lot of people have asked me how short I am. Since my last divorce, I think I’m about $100,000 short.
    Mickey Rooney (b. 1920)

    And like a prophetess of May
    Strew’d flowers upon the barren way,
    Making the wintry world appear
    Like one on whom thou smilest, dear.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
