Famous quotes containing the words vincent and/or bob:

    We were very tired, we were very merry—
    We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
    —Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)

    It was because of me. Rumors reached Inman that I had made a deal with Bob Dole whereby Dole would fill a paper sack full of doggie poo, set it on fire, put it on Inman’s porch, ring the doorbell, and then we would hide in the bushes and giggle when Inman came to stamp out the fire. I am not proud of this. But this is what we do in journalism.
