Famous quotes containing the word motion:

    Too many Broadway actors in motion pictures lost their grip on success—had a feeling that none of it had ever happened on that sun-drenched coast, that the coast itself did not exist, there was no California. It had dropped away like a hasty dream and nothing could ever have been like the things they thought they remembered.
    Mae West (1892–1980)

    till disproportion’d sin
    Jarr’d against natures chime, and with harsh din
    Broke the fair musick that all creatures made
    To their great Lord, whose love their motion sway’d
    In perfect Diapason, whilst they stood
    In first obedience, and their state of good.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Speech belongs half to the speaker, half to the listener. The latter must prepare to receive it according to the motion it takes.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
