Famous quotes containing the word manuel:
“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)
