Famous quotes containing the words virginia and/or isle:

    Being blunt with your feelings is very American. In this big country, I can be as brash as New York, as hedonistic as Los Angeles, as sensuous as San Francisco, as brainy as Boston, as proper as Philadelphia, as brawny as Chicago, as warm as Palm Springs, as friendly as my adopted home town of Dallas, Fort Worth, and as peaceful as the inland waterway that rubs up against my former home in Virginia Beach.
    Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)

    She carries in the dishes,
    And lays them in a row.
    To an isle in the water
    With her would I go.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
