Fortnight Quotations

In politics, there is no use looking beyond the next fortnight.
Joseph Chamberlain

When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.
Samuel Johnson

When I was younger, I could do something useful just by being free for half a day, but now I need five days to get the world I've left out of my head and ten days or a fortnight not talking to anyone to hold what I need to hold inside my head.
Tom Stoppard

Honeymoon lasts not nowadays above a fortnight.
Samuel Richardson

I am fussy, about my diet and straining my voice. I know, sounds a bit over the top. But I'm not as bad as I used to be. These days I don't drink alcohol for five days before a show - very dehydrating for the vocal cords, and all that acid reflux. I used to ban it for a fortnight. Nightmare.
Katherine Jenkins
