Famous quotes containing the words frank, moore and/or colby:

    I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.
    —Anne Frank (1929–1945)

    giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
    He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew like the down of a thistle,
    But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
    “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”
    —Clement Clarke Moore (1779–1863)

    Talk ought always to run obliquely, not nose to nose with no chance of mental escape.
    —Frank Moore Colby (1865–1925)
