Cable Quotations

This generation is so dead. You ask a kid, 'What are you doing this Saturday?' and they'll be playing video games or watching cable, instead of building model cars or airplanes or doing something creative. Kids today never say, 'Man, I'm really into remote-controlled steamboats.'
Jack White

Habit is a cable; we weave a thread of it each day, and at last we cannot break it.
Horace Mann

The perfect date for me would be staying at home, making a big picnic in bed, eating Wotsits and cookies while watching cable TV.
Kim Kardashian

I didn't have cable television growing up; there were only six channels you could watch then. The only really good channel was channel 10, and they would play 'The Nanny Called Fran' every night for years. I've seen every episode 100 times. I would get my Grandma to make me leopard skin dresses on her sewing machine.
Iggy Azalea

No cord or cable can draw so forcibly, or bind so fast, as love can do with a single thread.
Robert Burton
