Famous quotes containing the words personal life, personal and/or life:

    The dialectic between change and continuity is a painful but deeply instructive one, in personal life as in the life of a people. To “see the light” too often has meant rejecting the treasures found in darkness.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    Hostesses who entertain much must make up their parties as ministers make up their cabinets, on grounds other than personal liking.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    Every time an ashtray is missing from a hotel, they don’t come looking for you. But let a diamond bracelet disappear in France and they shout John Robie, the Cat. You don’t have to spend every day of your life proving your honesty, but I do.
    John Michael Hayes (b.1919)
