Famous quotes containing the word ringing:

    If I play hard to get, soon the phone stops ringing altogether.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    A woman spent all Christmas Day in a telephone box without ringing anyone. If someone comes to phone, she leaves the box, then resumes her place afterwards. No one calls her either, but from a window in the street, someone watched her all day, no doubt since they had nothing better to do. The Christmas syndrome.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
