Famous quotes containing the word affair:

    An affair wants to spill, to share its glory with the world. No act is so private it does not seek applause.
    John Updike (b. 1932)

    Time, which shows so vacant, indivisible, and divine in its coming, is slit and peddled into trifles and tatters. A door is to be painted, a lock to be repaired. I want wood, or oil, or meal, or salt; the house smokes, or I have a headache; then the tax; and an affair to be transacted with a man without heart or brains; and the stinging recollection of an injurious or very awkward word,—these eat up the hours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Snarls and sobs show that a love affair is getting serious.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
