Famous quotes containing the words island and/or floating:

    I candidly confess that I have ever looked on Cuba as the most interesting addition which could ever be made to our system of States. The control which, with Florida, this island would give us over the Gulf of Mexico, and the countries and isthmus bordering on it, as well as all those whose waters flow into it, would fill up the measure of our political well-being.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Writing prejudicial, off-putting reviews is a precise exercise in applied black magic.

    William Burroughs (b. 1914)
