Headed

Famous quotes containing the word headed:

    We’re headed for collapse, if you want my opinion, Missy. I can see it in the fallin’ off of the quality of vagrants. There was a time you could find real good company in almost any jungle you’d pick, men who could talk, men who’d read a book now and then; and now, what do you find, a lot of dirty little guttersnipes no decent tramp would want to associate with.
    Well, it’s been that way all through history.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    It must have looked as if the course
    He steered was really straight away
    From that which he was headed for
    Not much concerned for them, I say;
    No more so than became a man
    And politician at odd seasons.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Listen to me. You come into this town, and you think you’re headed somewhere, don’t you? You think you’re gonna get there with a gun, but you’re not. Get me. You know why, ‘cause you got thousand dollar bills pasted right across your eyes. And someday you’re gonna stumble and fall down in the gutter, right where the horses have been standin’, right where you belong.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)
