Performance Takes Place

Famous quotes containing the words performance, takes and/or place:

    The way to go to the circus, however, is with someone who has seen perhaps one theatrical performance before in his life and that in the High School hall....

    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    I had no place in any coterie, or in any reciprocal self-advertising. I stood alone. I stood outside. I wanted only to learn. I wanted only to write better.
    Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)
