Famous quotes containing the word nervous:

    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)

    TRUE!—nervous—very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    It is a bore, I admit, to be past seventy, for you are left for execution, and are daily expecting the death-warrant; but ... it is not anything very capital we quit. We are, at the close of life, only hurried away from stomach-aches, pains in the joints, from sleepless nights and unamusing days, from weakness, ugliness, and nervous tremors; but we shall all meet again in another planet, cured of all our defects.
    Sydney Smith (1771–1845)
