Famous quotes containing the words louise de, louise and/or salvo:

    Sport inevitably creates deadness of feeling. No one could take pleasure in it who was sensitive to suffering; and therefore its pursuit by women is much more to be regretted than its pursuit by men, because women pursue much more violently and recklessly what they pursue at all.
    Ouida [Marie Louise De La Ramée] (1839–1908)

    Having money is just the best thing in the world.
    Madonna [Madonna Louise Ciccione] (b. 1958)

    Old heavens, you used to tweak above us,
    Standing like rain whenever a salvo . . . Old heavens,
    You lying there above the old, but not ruined, fort,
    Can you hear, there, what I am saying?
    For it is you I am parodying,
    Your invisible denials.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
