Famous quotes containing the word news:

    There’s a long story, my friend. I never did like the idea of sitting on newspapers. I did it once and all the headlines came off on my white pants. On the level, it actually happened. Nobody bought a paper that day. They just followed me around over town and read the news off the seat of my pants.
    Robert Riskin (1897–1955)

    I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
    Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)

    News of battle! News of battle!
    Hark. ‘Tis ringing down the street
    And the archways and the pavement
    Bear the clang of hurrying feet.
    News of battle. Who has brought it?
    William Edmonstoune Aytoun (1813–1865)
