Famous quotes containing the words diamonds are, diamonds, girl and/or friend:

    Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
    Leo Robin (b. 1900)

    Shuffled between caring and disgrace
    I took up all our closet space.
    What luxury we first checked into,
    to growl like lawyers until I threw
    my diamonds and cash upon the floor.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    it’s just that I see love as odd as wearing shoes—
    I never wanted to marry a girl who was like my mother
    And Ingrid Bergman was always impossible
    Gregory Corso (b. 1930)

    I fear I agree with your friend in not liking all sermons. Some of them, one has to confess, are rubbish: but then I release my attention from the preacher, and go ahead in any line of thought he may have started: and his after-eloquence acts as a kind of accompaniment—like music while one is reading poetry, which often, to me, adds to the effect.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
