Famous quotes containing the word short:

    What a pity if we do not live this short time according to the laws of the long time,—the eternal laws!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I simply contend that the middle-class ideal which demands that people be affectionate, respectable, honest and content, that they avoid excitements and cultivate serenity is the ideal that appeals to me, it is in short the ideal of affectionate family life, of honorable business methods.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Hemingway is terribly limited. His technique is good for short stories, for people who meet once in a bar very late at night, but do not enter into relations. But not for the novel.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
