Des Princes

Famous quotes containing the words des and/or princes:

    When I was growing up I used to think that the best thing about coming from Des Moines was that it meant you didn’t come from anywhere else in Iowa. By Iowa standards, Des Moines is a mecca of cosmopolitanism, a dynamic hub of wealth and education, where people wear three-piece suits and dark socks, often simultaneously.
    Bill Bryson (b. 1951)

    I regret the unhappiness of princes who are slaves to forms and fettered by caution.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
