Famous quotes containing the words arizona and/or league:

    The Great Arizona Desert is full of the bleaching bones of people who waited for me to start something.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    I am not impressed by the Ivy League establishments. Of course they graduate the best—it’s all they’ll take, leaving to others the problem of educating the country. They will give you an education the way the banks will give you money—provided you can prove to their satisfaction that you don’t need it.
    Peter De Vries (b. 1910)
