Famous quotes containing the words russia and/or vera:

    A fool may be a dangerous customer, but the fact of his having such a vulnerable top-end turns danger into a first-rate sport; and whatever defects the old administration in Russia had, it must be conceded that it possessed one outstanding virtue—a lack of brains.

    Life’s like a ball game. You gotta take a swing at whatever comes along before you wake up and find out it’s the ninth inning.
