Famous quotes containing the words salem and/or people:

    without luggage or defenses,
    giving up my car keys and my cash,
    keeping only a pack of Salem cigarettes
    the way a child holds on to a toy.
    I signed myself in where a stranger
    puts the inked-in X’s
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    If people only knew as much about painting as I do, they would never buy my pictures.
    Edwin Landseer (1802–1873)
