A holiday is when you celebrate something that's all finished up, that happened a long time ago and now there's nothing left to celebrate but the dead.
A perpetual holiday is a good working definition of hell.
George Bernard Shaw
A systemic cleansing and detox is definitely the way to go after each holiday. It is the key to fighting high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and other health-related illnesses.
After all, the best part of a holiday is perhaps not so much to be resting yourself, as to see all the other fellows busy working.
April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom, holiday tables under the trees.
E. Y. Harburg
Billie Holiday I never met, but I love her music.
But to make a holiday record that involves favorite American songs and then also get to sing about Jesus birth, it just seemed like a real easy, subtle way to combine a couple of things that I love.
Christmas is a holiday that persecutes the lonely, the frayed, and the rejected.
Christmas is the antithesis of Thanksgiving. Christmas is pretty much a man-made holiday.
Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.
I can only say the first thing that pops into my mind is I remember, years ago, seeing kind of a has-been country singer working - when I first moved to Nashville - in a bar in a Holiday Inn.
I do not read SF as much as I used to. It's too much like a busman's holiday.
Jack L. Chalker
I don't want to go to the Bahamas on holiday. I hate islands. I want to go to Brittany, where it's cold and raining, and there's nothing fancy about it.
I don't want to spend the next two years in Holiday Inns.
Walter F. Mondale
I grew up in the 1950s and '60s, when it was almost a holiday when a black act would go on Ed Sullivan.
I have been determined for the past couple of years to move away from all those Holiday programmes.
I have been keeping myself fit. I am going on holiday next week in the Mediterranean so that I can really unwind after the football season and have a rest.
I have had a holiday, and I'd like to take it up professionally.
I have the ability to sing with emotion and feeling, but if you say I sound like Billie Holiday, that's cool. Let's look at who Billie was: she was this person, this singer, this beautiful diva who could move the audience with the slightest gesture of her hand.
I just feel - specifically about that holiday - why is it just one day that you have to tell the person that you love how much you love them? I think that is a little silly. I am much more the girl that likes the spontaneous.
