#1. In Hollywood, we have some of the richest unemployed people in the world. They have sun tans. Some of them have chauffeurs in Rolls-Royces waiting outside. They have their golf clubs ready in the car. There is no law that says you cannot play golf while being unemployed. - Author: Allan Sherman
Rolls Royce quotes by Allan Sherman

Rolls Royce quotes by Kimora Lee Simmons

Rolls Royce quotes by John O'Hara
#5. Paul: 'After recording sessions, at two or three in the morning, we'd be careering through the villages on the way to Weybridge, shouting 'weyhey' and driving much too fast. George would perhaps be in his Ferrari - he was quite a fast driver - and John and I would be following in his big Rolls Royce or the Princess. John had a mike in the Rolls with a loudspeaker outside and he'd be shouting to George in the front: 'It is foolish to resist, it is foolish to resist! Pull over!' It was insane. All the lights would go on in the houses as we went past - it must have freaked everybody out.

When John went to make 'How I Won the War' in Spain, he took the same car, which he virtually lived in. It had blacked-out windows and you could never see who was in it, so it was perfect. John didn't come out of it - he just used to talk to the people outside through the microphone: 'Get away from the car! Get away! - Author: Paul McCartney
Rolls Royce quotes by Paul McCartney

Rolls Royce quotes by Meek Mill
#8. My father earned every penny he had, and I would have loved to have bought him a Rolls-Royce because his whole life was cars. Sadly, he didn't live to see the day when I could have done that for him, which still hurts. - Author: Bruce Forsyth

#9. You're asking if I'm happy? I've got 87 million in the bank, I've got a Rolls Royce, I've got 3 stalkers, I'm about to go on the board at Manchester City, I'm part of the greatest band in the world. Am I happy with that? No, I'm not! I want more! - Author: Noel Gallagher
Rolls Royce quotes by Noel Gallagher

Rolls Royce quotes by Peter O'Toole
#11. I took care of my wheel as one would look after a Rolls Royce. If it needed repairs I always brought it to the same shop on Myrtle Avenue run by a negro named Ed Perry. He handled the bike with kid gloves, you might say. He would always see to it that neither front nor back wheel wobbled. Often he would do a job for me without pay, because, as he put it, he never saw a man so in love with his bike as I was. - Author: Henry Miller
Rolls Royce quotes by Henry Miller
#12. The door opened. A guy came in. Busy, bustling, sixty-something, medium size, a gray suit, a tight waistband, a warm and friendly face. Pink and round. Lots of energy, and the start of a smile. A guy who got things done, with a lot of charm. Like a salesman. Something complicated. Like a financial instrument, or a Rolls-Royce automobile. "I'm sorry," the guy said. To Sinclair only. "I didn't know you had company." American. An old-time Yankee accent. No one spoke. Then Sinclair said, "Excuse me. Sergeant Frances Neagley and Major Jack Reacher, U.S. Army, meet Mr. Rob Bishop, CIA head of station at the Hamburg consulate." "I just did a drive-by," Bishop said. "On the parallel street. The kid's bedroom. The lamp has moved in the window. - Author: Lee Child
Rolls Royce quotes by Lee Child
#13. When his rolls royce was mobbed by fans the chauffeur said:
'do you want me to get them off the car?'
and Lennon replied: 'No - they paid for it, they can wreck it - Author: John Lennon
Rolls Royce quotes by John Lennon

Rolls Royce quotes by Russell Simmons
#16. EXPENSIVE CARS The most expensive chassis on the British market is the 45-50 h.p. Rolls-Royce and the 50 h.p. double-six Daimler, the prices of both of which range from £1850. Complete cars, of course, vary in price according to the coachwork fitted, but one of the standard models of the 50 h.p. Daimler is an enclosed drive model with a fixed head, listed at prices ranging from £2500. Special coachwork jobs cost as much as £1200 to £1300 on other chassis, bringing the total price up to £3000 or more. There are also, of course, Continental chassis which sell at the same price, but the Import duty partly accounts for their high prices. These include the 45 h.p. Hispano-Suiza chassis (£1950), and Isotta Frasbin sports (£1850); super sports, (£1950). Another expensive English chassis is the 40 h.p. Lancaster (£1800). The Argus - Author: Sulari Gentill

Rolls Royce quotes by Pavan Desai
#18. "Cannonball Adderley said, 'First 20 minutes we'll jazz out, then the last hour it's gonna be songs that people paid to see.' Which is why he was driving a Rolls-Royce." - Author: Robert Glasper
Rolls Royce quotes by Robert Glasper
#19. What am I supposed to haul my dogs around in, a Rolls-Royce? - Author: Sam Walton
Rolls Royce quotes by Sam Walton
#20. All brands, whether high-ticket luxury ones such as Cartier or Rolls-Royce or 'masstige' ones with luxe-y overtones but altogether more affordable, all want to grow. Even brands that may have started in a modestly niche design and lifestyle fashion can find themselves under pressure to go global or to sell out at the top. - Author: Peter York
Rolls Royce quotes by Peter York
#21. When you are a rich man you are proud to own a Rolls Royce and when you are a poor man you are proud to own a Renault. - Author: Eric Cantona
Rolls Royce quotes by Eric Cantona
#22. Gonzo stares after the Rolls-Royce. He has heroismus interruptus. He was ready, right then, to coordinate four or five hundred terrified civvies, lay down his life, kill for them, make a legend of disinterested soldiering. It's not that he resents what has happened, but he's having trouble changing gear. He was expecting to take charge. Instead he is struggling to keep up with a sexagenarian Mystery Man with an Errol Flynn grin who commands a legion of pirate-monk rally drivers and sweeps formidable older women from their feet in a could of cologne and Asian-Monarchic style. - Author: Nick Harkaway
Rolls Royce quotes by Nick Harkaway
#23. At 60 miles an hour the loudest noise in this Rolls-Royce comes from the electric clock. - Author: David Ogilvy
Rolls Royce quotes by David Ogilvy
#24. In America, if your next-door neighbor has a Rolls-Royce, you want one too. But in England, if your neighbor has a Rolls-Royce, you want him to die in a fiery accident. That's a quote from someone else, but there's something about American optimism, that feeling you can do anything if you're at least middle class in America. If I can have a writing career, anyone can. There's nothing special about me. - Author: David Sedaris
Rolls Royce quotes by David Sedaris
#25. So, you're seeing the Rolls-Royces and the Bentley's still selling for big prices. You're seeing jewelry still selling, art works at auction. There was a diamond that sold for I think 38 million, 48 million, something like that just a week ago. So prices are back up to their highs, getting stronger and more and more people seem to have more and more money to spend. - Author: Robin Leach
Rolls Royce quotes by Robin Leach
#26. Rabbi Heskel Shpilman is a deformed mountain, a giant ruined desert, a cartoon house with the windows shut and the sink left running. A little kid lumped him together, a mob of kids, blind orphans who never laid eyes on a man. They clumped the dough of his arms and legs to the dough of his body, then jammed his head down on top. A millionaire could cover a Rolls-Royce with the fine black silk-and-velvet expanse of the rebbe's frock coat and trousers. It would require the brain strength of the eighteen greatest sages in history to reason through the arguments against and in favor of classifying the rebbe's massive bottom as either a creature of the deep, a man-made structure, or an unavoidable act of God. - Author: Michael Chabon
Rolls Royce quotes by Michael Chabon
#27. A healthy mind and body are essential. No excesses. Proper food. The body is like a Rolls-Royce. With care, it could last 200 years. It's a dynamo; the more you use it, the more you recharge it. - Author: Oleg Cassini
Rolls Royce quotes by Oleg Cassini

Rolls Royce quotes by Lou Whitaker
#30. We run after values that, at death, become zero. At the end of your life, nobody asks you how many degrees you have, or how many mansions you built, or how many Rolls Royces you could afford. That's what dying patients teach you. - Author: Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Rolls Royce quotes by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
#31. I suspect that many of the great cultural shifts that prepare the way for political change are largely aesthetic - Author: J.G. Ballard
Rolls Royce quotes by J.G. Ballard
#32. any medium. Henry Stupen of Elco, the electric boat company, purchased PT 9 along with reproduction rights and lengthened the boat to 77 feet in order to carry the four torpedo tubes the U.S. Navy wanted. With Scott-Paine at the controls and the Rolls Royce engines purring beneath him, PT 9 won every sea trial it entered. The US Navy had their PT Boat. Three Packard marine engines replaced PT 9's Rolls Royce engines. - Author: Michael Engelmann
Rolls Royce quotes by Michael Engelmann
#33. I am like a Rolls- Royce. I can run without an engine, purely on reputation - Author: Shahrukh Khan
Rolls Royce quotes by Shahrukh Khan
#34. The federal government could make a Rolls Royce affordable for every American, but we would not be a richer country as a result. We would in fact be a much poorer country, because of all the vast resources transferred from other economic activities to subsidize an extravagant luxury. [...] To have politicians arbitrarily change the price tags, so that prices no longer represent the real costs, is to defeat the whole purpose [of an economy: to make trade-offs, with the prices of a market economy representing the costs of producing things].
Reality doesn't change when the government changes price tags. Talk about "bringing down health care costs" is not aimed at the costly legal environment in which medical science operates, or other sources of needless medical costs. It is aimed at price control, which hides costs rather than reducing them. [...]
Whether in France during the 1790s, the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik revolution, or in newly independent African nations during the past generation, governments have imposed artificially low prices on food. In each case, this led to artificially low supplies of food and artificially high levels of hunger.
People who complain about the "prohibitive" cost of housing, or of going to college, for example, fail to understand that the whole point of costs is to be prohibitive. [...] The idea [that "basic necessities" should be a "right"] certainly sounds nice. But the very fact that we can seriously entertain such a notio - Author: Thomas Sowell
Rolls Royce quotes by Thomas Sowell
#35. You know, sometimes I don't understand what's wrong with us. This is just about the most creative and imaginative country on earth - and yet sometimes we just don't seem to have the gumption to exploit our intellectual property. We split the atom, and now we have to get French or Korean scientists to help us build nuclear power stations. We perfected the finest cars on earth - and now Rolls-Royce is in the hands of the Germans. Whatever we invent, from the jet engine to the internet, we find that someone else carts it off and makes a killing from it elsewhere. - Author: Boris Johnson
Rolls Royce quotes by Boris Johnson
#36. The only big things I've purchased are my dad's heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga license plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car. - Author: Lady Gaga
Rolls Royce quotes by Lady Gaga
#37. The whole point is I'm trying to get you to see-to get you out of this malaise of thinking that Jesus and the disciples were poor and then relating that to you thinking that you, as a child of God, have to follow Jesus. The Bible says that He has left us an example that we should follow His steps. That's the reason why I drive a Rolls Royce. I'm following Jesus' steps. - Author: Frederick K. C. Price
Rolls Royce quotes by Frederick K. C. Price
#38. I've never wanted to drive a car fast for the sake of it. I mean, I like nice cars. I've got the Bentley, I've had a Lotus, I've had a Rolls-Royce and a few Jaguars, including an E-type. But I'm not somebody for driving tremendously fast. - Author: Terry Wogan
Rolls Royce quotes by Terry Wogan
#39. But what stupendous good fortune! What an answer to prayer. A guest house, and a charming hostess. My Rolls Royce, alas, has run into a snowdrift. blinding snow everywhere. I do not know where I am. Perhaps, I think to myself, I shall freeze to death. And then I take a little bag, I stagger through the snow, I see before me big iron gates. A habitation! I am saved. Twice I fall into the snow as I come up your drive, but at last I arrive and immediately - despair turns to joy. You can let me have a room - yes? - Author: Agatha Christie
Rolls Royce quotes by Agatha Christie
#40. Calling it a simple schoolgirl crush was like saying a Rolls-Royce was a vehicle with four wheels, something like a hay-wagon. She did not giggle wildly and blush when she saw him, nor did she chalk his name on trees or write it on the walls of the Kissing Bridge. She simply lived with his face in her heart all the time, a kind of sweet, hurtful ache. She would have died for him.. - Author: Stephen King
Rolls Royce quotes by Stephen King
#41. Composers love to write for symphony orchestras because the symphony is the Rolls Royce of musical instruments. - Author: David Del Tredici
Rolls Royce quotes by David Del Tredici
#42. I don't need a Rolls Royce, I don't need a house in the country, I don't want to have to live in France. I don't have any rock and roll heroes; they're all useless. The Stones and The Who don't mean anything anymore; they're established. The Stones are more of a business than a band - Author: John Lydon
Rolls Royce quotes by John Lydon
#43. I've never been that person who wants a Rolls Royce or wants to live in a mansion or what have you. - Author: Naomie Harris
Rolls Royce quotes by Naomie Harris
#44. The amount of improvement that has occurred in computer technology in the past half century is truly staggering and unprecedented in other industries. ... If cars had improved at this rate in the same time period, a Rolls Royce would now cost 10 dollars and get a billion miles per gallon. (Unfortunately, it would probably also have a 200-page manual telling how to open the door.) - Author: Andrew S. Tanenbaum
Rolls Royce quotes by Andrew S. Tanenbaum
#45. Paul Furlong is my vintage Rolls Royce and he cost me nothing. We polish him, look after him, and I have him fine tuned by my mechanics. We take good care of him because we have to drive him every day, not just save him for weddings. - Author: Ian Holloway
Rolls Royce quotes by Ian Holloway
#46. You're not looking for the Rolls Royce and the big fancy trailer. Those are supposed to be the byproducts of having fun and then getting good at what you do. - Author: Bruce Campbell
Rolls Royce quotes by Bruce Campbell

Rolls Royce quotes by Tiffany Reisz
#48. Where I lived, it was a cold mining place, a village called Dunston. The only time you saw a Rolls-Royce was when somebody died. - Author: Brian Johnson
Rolls Royce quotes by Brian Johnson
#49. Ten years ago, when I was living in a small flat above an off-licence in SW1, I learned that the big house next door had been bought by the wife of the dictator of Nicaragua, Anastasio Somoza Debayle. The street was obviously going down in the world, what with the murder of the nanny Sandra Rivett by that nice Lord Lucan at number 44, and I moved out a few months later. I never met Hope Somoza, but her house became notorious in the street for a burglar alarm that went off with surprising frequency, and for the occasional parties that would cause the street to be jammed solid with Rolls - Royce, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar limousines. Back in Managua, her husband 'Tacho' had taken a mistress, Dinorah, and Hope was no doubt trying to keep her spirits up. - Author: Salman Rushdie
Rolls Royce quotes by Salman Rushdie
#50. You win the fight in the training camp, not on the day of the fight. - Author: Royce Gracie
Rolls Royce quotes by Royce Gracie
#51. What do you do?" Leon leaned forward. "You left the Army and disappeared. How come?"
"Leon," Mother warned.
"Is it because of the war?" Lina asked. "People on Herald say you have PTSD and you became a hermit like a monk because of it."
"Either a hermit or a monk, not both," I corrected out of habit.
"Herald also said he was disfigured." Arabella made big eyes.
"Yes, I'm a hermit. Mostly I brood," Mad Rogan said. "Also I'm very good at wallowing in self-pity. I spend my days steeped in melancholy, looking out the window. Occasionally a single tear quietly rolls down my cheek."
Arabella and Lina snickered in unison.
"Do you also brush a white orchid against your lips?" Arabella put in.
"While sad music plays in the background?" Lina grinned.
"Perhaps," Mad Rogan said.
"Do you have a girlfriend?" Grandma Frida asked.
I put my hand over my face.
"No," Mad Rogan said.
"A boyfriend?" Grandma Frida asked.
"No."
"What about . . ."
"No," Mom and I said in unison.
"But you don't even know what I wanted to ask!"
"No," we said again together.
"Party poopers. - Author: Ilona Andrews
Rolls Royce quotes by Ilona Andrews
#52. The deep, salty, black sea rolls toward us, cold and indifferent, lacking all empathy. Detached, merely itself. This is what the ocean does every day. It doesn't need us for anything. It doesn't care about our hopes and fears, not does it give a damn about our descriptions. The dark weight of the sea is a superior power. Many have been in this situation every since some of our overconfident ancestors set a hollowed out tree trunk in the water and paddled off on languid waves, only to venture out too far where the currents were stronger than their arms or paddles. Or maybe like us, they were surprised by a storm. All of them must have felt the same cold shiver when they realized the sea is truly without sentimentality or memory. Whatever it swallows is gone, becoming food for the fish, crabs and annelid worms. For the lamprey, hag fish, flat worms, ring worms, and all the parasites of the deep. To be drowned and embraced by the eternal, indeterminate all. - Author: Morten A. Strøksnes
Rolls Royce quotes by Morten A. Strøksnes
#53. Dirt rolls from his palm, Blades of grass Tumble from his hair. - Author: Gary Soto
Rolls Royce quotes by Gary Soto
#54. I never imagined in a million years that someone could see me the way that you see me and make me feel that I'm worth something. And I hope, beyond all hopes, that I do the same for you."
Slowly she lifts up her head and rolls over to the side, blinking up at me with tears swimming in her eyes.
"You mean that?" she whispers.
I can't help the lovesick puppy smile that I know is spreading across my face. "I mean it. I mean it with every beat of my Viking heart.
"A savage heart," she whispers. "A warrior heart."
"A hearts that's all yours. - Author: Karina Halle
Rolls Royce quotes by Karina Halle
#55. Don't steal sweet rolls. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Rolls Royce quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#56. I like Miami in the winter: there's no humidity, no bugs, no mosquitoes. You go out and wear your jacket, and you're all good! - Author: Prince Royce
Rolls Royce quotes by Prince Royce
#57. If you die, you won't be my uncle anymore," Royce offered.
"Planning to do me in, are you?"

Royce pondered this a moment before saying, "Not until I'm older."

"How very reassuring. I shall sleep better at night, knowing it. Be sure to let me know the date on which you plan to kill me, won't you? - Author: Michelle Willingham
Rolls Royce quotes by Michelle Willingham
#58. You've always got to remember, rock and roll's never been about giving up. For me, for a lot of kids, it was a totally positive force ... not optimistic all the time, but positive. It was never
never
a bout surrender. - Author: Bruce Springsteen
Rolls Royce quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#59. Jiko: "Surfer, wave, same thing."
"That's just stupid, " I said. " A surfer's a person. A wave is a wave. How can they be the same?"
Jiko looked out across the ocean to where the water met the sky. "A wave is born from deep conditions of the ocean. A person is born from deep conditions of the world. A person pokes up from the world and rolls along like a wave, until it is time to sink down again. Up, down. Person, wave. - Author: Ruth Ozeki
Rolls Royce quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#60. A loose board on the boat's deck creaked under Hadrian's weight and Royce glared at him. Twelve years they had worked together, and still Royce did not seem capable of understanding that Hadrian could not float. The problem was that Royce apparently could. He made it look so easy. Hadrian walked like the caricature of a thief - on his toes, his arms out for balance, wavering up and down as if he were on a tightrope. Royce walked as casually as if he were sauntering down a city street. They communicated as they always did on the job, with facial expressions and hand gestures. Royce had learned sign language as part of his guild training but had never bothered teaching Hadrian more than a few signals. Royce was always able to communicate what he needed by pointing, counting with his fingers, or making simple obvious signs like scissoring his fingers across his level palm, imitating legs walking on a floor. He expressed most of his silent dialogue the way he was now: through rolled eyes, glares, and the pitiable shaking of his head. Given how irritated he so often looked, it was a mystery why he put up with Hadrian. - Author: Michael J. Sullivan
Rolls Royce quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#61. Worrying is like a dominoes effect, that rolls from one day into the next, into a week, a month, a year;
never accomplishing anything but stress, until it hits that last tile, which drops unfulfilled to an empty ground. - Author: Anthony Liccione
Rolls Royce quotes by Anthony Liccione
#62. I go skydiving often. At least twice a year. - Author: Prince Royce
Rolls Royce quotes by Prince Royce
#63. I hope to touch many Hearts through my music - Author: Prince Royce
Rolls Royce quotes by Prince Royce
#64. I really, really enjoy fitting words together - but I only enjoy it when it's easy, when it sort of rolls along by itself. I never erase anything [and] I hardly ever write anything down ... The song will be finished before I write it down ... I won't write a song unless it serves me in some way, unless I feel I have to write the song to make myself feel better. If you're not overflowing with something, there's nothing to give. - Author: Fiona Apple
Rolls Royce quotes by Fiona Apple
#65. I always used to sing in the shower, but I never really got into the music until a friend of mine helped me a lot with recording. - Author: Prince Royce
Rolls Royce quotes by Prince Royce
#66. Before I really even understood what the term meant, I wanted to be wealthy. I wanted to be able to drive the beautiful old Rolls-Royces my father admired when I was a child. - Author: John Caudwell
Rolls Royce quotes by John Caudwell
#67. I have driven school buses, sold egg rolls and painted houses, and I have often wondered what my life would have been like if I hadn't gone into acting. Mind you, it's a great life, going around pretending you're other people and getting paid ridiculous sums of money for it. - Author: John Malkovich
Rolls Royce quotes by John Malkovich
#68. For the Absolute, as we now know, all life is individual, but is individual as expressing a meaning. - Author: Josiah Royce
Rolls Royce quotes by Josiah Royce
#69. To Nature nothing can be added; from Nature nothing can be taken away; the sum of her energies is constant, and the utmost man can do in the pursuit of physical truth, or in the applications of physical knowledge, is to shift the constituents of the never-varying total. The law of conservation rigidly excludes both creation and annihilation. Waves may change to ripples, and ripples to waves; magnitude may be substituted for number, and number for magnitude; asteroids may aggregate to suns, suns may resolve themselves into florae and faunae, and floras and faunas melt in air: the flux of power is eternally the same. It rolls in music through the ages, and all terrestrial energy - the manifestations of life as well as the display of phenomena - are but the modulations of its rhythm. - Author: John Tyndall
Rolls Royce quotes by John Tyndall
#70. And like an aviator who rolls painfully along the ground until, abruptly, he breaks away from it, I felt myself being slowly lifted towards the silent peaks of memory. - Author: Marcel Proust
Rolls Royce quotes by Marcel Proust
#71. Possil - and other areas like it, in other cities - has been in that state for so long that it now gives birth to itself. No chance of revolution now - the anger is muted and turned inwards. Possil picks at its own sores. When somebody manages to get a new car, somebody else is bound to torch it. But it doesn't occur to them to head out to Bearsden or Newton Meams, the places where the nobs live, and torch a few Mercs or Rolls Royces. They don't do it to the people whose opinion matters. They only do it to each other. And who in Newton Mearns cares if a bunch of schemies on the other side of town burn their own property? And so Possil, and Maryhill, and Easterhouse, and Drumchapel all stay the same. - Author: Barry Graham
Rolls Royce quotes by Barry Graham
#72. I find that Americans completely lack sensibility and good taste. They are boring, and they all have faces like unbaked rolls. - Author: Frida Kahlo
Rolls Royce quotes by Frida Kahlo
#73. A magpie can be happy or sad: sometimes so happy that he sits on a high, high gum tree and rolls the sunrise around in his throat like beads of pink sunlight; and sometimes so sad that you would expect the tears to drip off his beak.
This magpie was like that. - Author: Colin Thiele
Rolls Royce quotes by Colin Thiele
#74. My acting technique is to look up at God just before the camera rolls and say, 'Give me a break.' - Author: James Caan
Rolls Royce quotes by James Caan
#75. Rahul had been underwhelmed by the New Year's rituals of the rich. "Moronic," he had concluded. "Just people drinking and dancing and standing around acting stupid, like people here do every night."

"The hotel people get strange when they drink," he told his friends. "Last night at the end of the party, there was one hero-good-looking, stripes on his suit, expensive cloth. He was drunk, full tight, and he started stuffing bread into his pants pockets, jacket pockets. Then he put more rolls straight into his pants! Rolls fell on the floor and he was crawling under the table to get them. This one waiter was saying the guy must have been hungry, earlier- that whiskey brought back the memory. But when I get rich enough to be a guest at a big hotel, I'm not going to act like such a loser. - Author: Katherine Boo
Rolls Royce quotes by Katherine Boo
#76. Disco B still rolls with me now. He's still doing his thing. He does clubs in different places. He was very instrumental in helping me perfect my craft. - Author: Grandmaster Flash
Rolls Royce quotes by Grandmaster Flash
#77. I put my hand on top of hers and squeeze. "And you've got me."
She rolls her eyes.
"No," I tell her, my voice rough. She blinks at me in surprise. "I mean you really have me. If you'll have me. - Author: Karina Halle
Rolls Royce quotes by Karina Halle
#78. Some states have actually increased funding for fraud investigation because the programs are paid for by federal funds they would lose if they weren't spent - in other words, rather than lose funding because of reduced welfare rolls, states simply increase the amount of staff for welfare fraud investigation. - Author: Matt Taibbi
Rolls Royce quotes by Matt Taibbi
#79. Josiah Royce wrote a book with the title The Philosophy of Loyalty. - Author: Atul Gawande
Rolls Royce quotes by Atul Gawande
#80. Rock and roll's relatively new, in the sense of the Fifties, Sixties, right? They invented the first sort of rock stars, and they took it to excess, and then the excess became bitter, tormented. Then it became okay to succeed. - Author: Albert Hammond, Jr.
Rolls Royce quotes by Albert Hammond, Jr.
#81. When first the college rolls receive his name,
The young enthusiast quilts his ease for fame;
Through all his veins the fever of renown
Burns from the strong contagion of the gown - Author: Samuel Johnson
Rolls Royce quotes by Samuel Johnson
