Famous quotes containing the word play:

    I get a little Verlaine
    for Patsy with drawings by Bonnard although I do
    think of Hesiod, trans. Richmond Lattimore or
    Brendan Behan’s new play or Le Balcon or Les Negres
    of Genet, but I don’t, I stick with Verlaine
    after practically going to sleep with quandariness
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)

    when the moment comes
    we’ll talk turkey,
    we’ll shoot words straight from the hip,
    we’ll play it as it lays.
    Yes,
    when death comes with its hood
    we won’t be polite.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Friends serve central functions for children that parents do not, and they play a critical role in shaping children’s social skills and their sense of identity. . . . The difference between a child with close friendships and a child who wants to make friends but is unable to can be the difference between a child who is happy and a child who is distressed in one large area of life.
    Zick Rubin (20th century)
