West Indies

Famous quotes containing the words west and/or indies:

    This place is the longest running farce in the West End.
    Cyril Smith (b. 1928)

    It is my duty to prevent, through the independence of Cuba, the U.S.A. from spreading over the West Indies and falling with added weight upon other lands of Our America. All I have done up to now and shall do hereafter is to that end.... I know the Monster, because I have lived in its lair—and my weapon is only the slingshot of David.
    José Martí (1853–1895)
