Famous quotes containing the word spare:

    My friend devotes himself to his life, whenever he can find the spare time. His motto is: ‘Don’t just sit there: live!’ So he’s too busy to stand, to walk, to do anything, except to live. He even refused to kiss a girl, when invited, on the grounds that it was time again to be living. Schedules are sacred to him.
    Marvin Cohen, U.S. author and humorist. The Self-Devoted Friend, New Directions (1967)

    When an acquaintance goes by I often step back from my window, not so much to spare him the effort of acknowledging me as to spare myself the embarrassment of seeing that he has not done so.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    I asked you to play. If you can’t think of anything better, play a chromatic five finger exercise. But spare me your suburban shopgirl trash.
    Muriel Box (b. 1905)
