Hotel Maison De

Famous quotes containing the words hotel and/or maison:

    The talk shows are stuffed full of sufferers who have regained their health—congressmen who suffered through a serious spell of boozing and skirt-chasing, White House aides who were stricken cruelly with overweening ambition, movie stars and baseball players who came down with acute cases of wanting to trash hotel rooms while under the influence of recreational drugs. Most of them have found God, or at least a publisher.
    Calvin Trillin (b. 1935)

    There is a social respect necessary in company: you may start your own subject of conversation with modesty, taking care, however, de ne jamais parler de cordes dans la maison d’un pendu.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
