Lightweight Pilot Takes

Famous quotes containing the words pilot and/or takes:

    The river knows the way to the sea;
    Without a pilot it runs and falls,
    Blessing all lands with its charity.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The agent never receipts his bill, puts his hat on and bows himself out. He stays around forever, not only for as long as you can write anything that anyone will buy, but as long as anyone will buy any portion of any right to anything that you ever did write. He just takes ten per cent of your life.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
