You don't retire in this business.You just notice that the phone has not rung for ten years.
The Rev St John Froude put the phone down thoughtfully. The notion that he was sharing the house with a disembodied and recently murdered woman was not one that he had wanted to put to his caller. His reputation for eccentricity was already sufficiently widespread without adding to it.Tom (Thomas Ridley) Sharpe

Just like a picture is worth 1000 words, a camera phone is worth 1000 cell phones!philippe kahn
We wanted to figure out a way to get crank phone calls on television. Watching someone on TV talking on a phone isn't that entertaining, and obviously we couldn't send a camera crew around to the people getting the calls, so it was limited to either animation or puppets. And puppets seemed halfway between cartoons and people, so that seemed like the most real way that we could do it.jimmy kimmel
Everyone on the set has a mobile phone, and I found by pushing a few buttons, they could be programmed into different languages. I fixed Robbie's (Coltrane) to speak in Turkish.daniel radcliffe

When I finally reached Edie on the phone, she called out to me: "Get me out of here! I'm a prisoner." Shortly afterwards she was on a plane back to New York, where she arrived smiling and completely covering up the discomfort she had experienced at home. She had a certain puritanical way of not letting her blues get in the way of her life-style.edie sedgwick
To put it one way, a collection of Shakespeare's plays is richer than a phone book that uses the same number of letters; to put it another, the essence of information lies in the relationships among bits, not their sheer number.hans christian von baeyer

The true goal of the bourgeois life, in other words, is not self-enactment, but diversion. Most people need the organised distraction of work (if they can find it). Idleness - the life of the playboy who doesn't answer the phone - is simply too demanding.john n. gray
Just like that, a single phone call erased one possible, horrendous future and replaced it with the bright certainty that God had answered the prayers of thousands and that their beloved Abby was coming home.abby sunderland
I'm sorry, but when you're 12, you don't need a new mobile phone every few months just because a new one comes out.
