Famous quotes containing the word started:

    So by all means let’s have a television show quick and long, even if the commercial has to be delivered by a man in a white coat with a stethoscope hanging around his neck, selling ergot pills.

    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
