Famous quotes containing the words louise and/or delany:

    I love meetings with suits. I live for meetings with suits. I love them because I know they had a really boring week and I walk in there with my orange velvet leggings and drop popcorn in my cleavage and then fish it out and eat it. I like that. I know I’m entertaining them and I know that they know. Obviously, the best meetings are with suits that are intelligent, because then things are operating on a whole other level.
    Madonna [Madonna Louise Ciccione] (b. 1959)

    You are not a doctor of dentistry! You are a doctor of segregation!
    —Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)
