Famous quotes containing the words short, story and/or collection:

    Modern pictures are, no doubt, delightful to look at. At least, some of them are. But they are quite impossible to live with; they are too clever, too assertive, too intellectual. Their meaning is too obvious, and their method too clearly defined. One exhausts what they have to say in a very short time, and then they become as tedious as one’s relations.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    My story being done,
    She gave me for my pains a world of sighs;
    She swore, in faith ‘twas strange, ‘twas passing strange;
    ‘Twas pitiful, ‘twas wondrous pitiful.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    You know, many people believe that we archaeologists are just a collection of old fogies digging around in the ruins after old dried up skulls and bones.
    Griffin Jay, and Harold Young. Stephen Banning (Dick Foran)
