Famous quotes containing the words juan and/or manuel:
“Is that the Craig Jurgesen that Teddy Roosevelt gave you?... And you used it at San Juan Hill defending liberty. Now you want to destroy it.”
—Laurence Stallings (18941968)
“And Manuel embraced his mother and they laughed together: Déliras laugh sounded surprisingly young; that was because she hadnt really had the chance to make it heard; life was just not happy enough for that. No, she never had time to use it; she had kept it fresh as can be, like a birdsong in an old nest.”
—Jacques Roumain (19071945)
