Piper Quotations

When you're asked to fly a 747 you better at least be able to fly a Piper cub.
Edward James Olmos

When I play it I look out and see people hold on to each other and dance or just couples leaning into each other and kiss. And I'll go: 'You know, I could have worked hard at school and been a dentist. But I'm so glad I didn't.' Because when I look out and see that I feel like the Pied Piper of love.
Chris Isaak

You have to ask these questions: who pays the piper, and what is valuable in this life?
Robert Plant

Risk is the sort of word that is easy to discuss upfront but tough to handle when it comes time to pay the piper. There will always be some who wimp out and second-guess when the pain hits, but that is a childish reaction.
Nathan Myhrvold

Religion, like water, may be free, but when they pipe it to you, you've got to help pay for piping. And the Piper!
Pauline Phillips
