Famous quotes containing the words carey, frank and/or reginald:

    One thing I am determined on is that by the time I die my brain shall weigh as much as a man’s if study and learning can make it so.
    —M. Carey Thomas (1857–1935)

    I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.
    —Anne Frank (1929–1945)

    You have nothing more to fear. Not death nor decay. Here in this cup is my gift of life to you. I’m going to make you immortal. And I, too, shall drink and be immortal. We will not return to Egypt. Our world shall be wide, our time shall be without end. Has any man before offered a gift of eternal life to his bride?
    Griffin Jay, and Reginald LeBorg. Yousef Bey (John Carradine)
