Famous quotes containing the word eleanor:
“Here lies the body of William Jones
Who all his life collected bones,
Till Death, that grim and boney spectre,
That universal bone collector,
Boned old Jones, so neat and tidy,
And here he lies, all bona fide.”
—Anonymous. Epitaph on William Jones, from Eleanor Broughtons Varia (1925)
