Famous quotes containing the words weekday, peak and/or hours:
“But listen, up the road, something gulps, the church spire
Opens its eight bells out, skulls mouths which will not tire
To tell how there is no music or movement which secures
Escape from the weekday time. Which deadens and endures.”
—Louis MacNeice (19071963)
“You know, I often thought that the gangster and the artist are the same in the eyes of the masses. Theyre admired and hero-worshipped but there is always present underlying desire to see them destroyed at the peak of their glory.”
—Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
“And how many hours a day did you do lessons? said Alice, in a hurry to change the subject.
Ten hours the first day, said the Mock Turtle: nine the next, and so on.
What a curious plan! exclaimed Alice.
Thats the reason theyre called lessons, the Gryphon remarked: because they lessen from day to day.”
—Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (18321898)
