Famous quotes containing the word michael:

    I never felt so fervently thankful, so soothed, so tranquil, so filled with the blessed peace, as I did yesterday when I learned that Michael Angelo was dead.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Every time an ashtray is missing from a hotel, they don’t come looking for you. But let a diamond bracelet disappear in France and they shout John Robie, the Cat. You don’t have to spend every day of your life proving your honesty, but I do.
    —John Michael Hayes (b.1919)
