Famous quotes containing the word nervous:

    Toward education marriage nervous breakdown, operation, teaching
    school, and learning to be mad, in a dream—what is this
    life?
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    I can’t accept “our nervous age,” since mankind has been nervous during every age. Whoever fears nervousness should turn into a sturgeon or smelt; if a sturgeon makes a stupid mistake, it can only be one: to end up on a hook, and then in a pan in a pastry shell.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    The knocking out of a pipe can be made almost as important as the smoking of it, especially if there are nervous people in the room. A good, smart knock of a pipe against a tin wastebasket and you will have a neurasthenic out of his chair and into the window sash in no time.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
