Famous quotes containing the words abraham polonsky and/or polonsky:

    A man could spend the rest of his life trying to remember what he shouldn’t have said.
    Abraham Polonsky (b. 1910)

    I found my brother’s body at the bottom there, where they had thrown it away on the rocks, by the river. Like an old, dirty rag nobody wants. He was dead. And I felt I had killed him. I turned back to give myself up.... Because if a man’s life can be lived so long and come out this way, like rubbish, then something was horrible, and had to be ended one way or another. And I decided to help.
    —Abraham Polonsky (b. 1910)
