Famous quotes containing the word shot:

    Suppose by chance you do get picked up. What have you done? You shot a horse; that isn’t first degree murder; in fact, it isn’t even murder; in fact, I don’t know what it is.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)

    You know people exaggerate that all is wild in Jamaica. I think that sometimes people fire a shot to try to make you nervous. They are not trying to hurt you.
    Michael Manley (b. 1924)

    He shakes the dust from off his feet
    And shambles down the dirty street
    The last man in the town, they said,
    Who’d shot a hundred Yankees dead.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
