Famous quotes containing the word center:
“Louise Bryant: Im sorry if you dont believe in mutual independence and free love and respect.
Eugene ONeill: Dont give me a lot of parlor socialism that you learned in the village. If you were mine, I wouldnt share you with anybody or anything. It would be just you and me. Youd be at the center of it all. You know it would feel a lot more like love than being left alone with your work.”
—Warren Beatty (b. 1937)
“Every beloved object is the center point of a paradise.”
—Novalis [Friedrich Von Hardenberg] (17721801)
“Actually being married seemed so crowded with unspoken rules and odd secrets and unfathomable responsibilities that it had no more occurred to her to imagine being married herself than it had to imagine driving a motorcycle or having a job. She had, however, thought about being a bride, which had more to do with being the center of attention and looking inexplicably, temporarily beautiful than it did with sharing a double bed with someone with hairy legs and a drawer full of boxer shorts.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
