Special

Famous quotes containing the word special:

    I don’t like to be idle; in fact, I often feel somewhat guilty unless there is some purpose to what I am doing. But spending a few hours—or a few days—in the woods, swamps or alongside a stream has never seemed to me a waste of time.... I derive special benefit from a period of solitude.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    Jack: A politician, huh?
    Editor: Oh, county treasurer or something like that.
    Jack: What’s so special about him?
    Editor: They say he’s an honest man.
    Robert Rossen (1908–1966)

    People generally will soon understand that writers should be judged, not according to rules and species, which are contrary to nature and art, but according to the immutable principles of the art of composition, and the special laws of their individual temperaments.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
