Famous quotes containing the words anderson and/or elizabeth:

    I am willing, for a money consideration, to test this physical strength, this nervous force, and muscular power with which I’ve been gifted, to show that they will bear a certain strain. If I break down, if my brain gives way under want of sleep, my heart ceases to respond to the calls made on my circulatory system, or the surcharged veins of my extremities burst—if, in short, I fall helpless, or it may be, dead on the track, then I lose my money.
    —Ada Anderson (1860–?)

    When once estrangement has arisen between those who truly love each other, everything seems to widen the breach.
    —Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1837–1915)
