Famous quotes containing the words georgia and/or airport:

    Being a Georgia author is a rather specious dignity, on the same order as, for the pig, being a Talmadge ham.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
