Famous quotes containing the words loesser and/or frank:

    Boy, if I were a lamp I’d light, or if I were a banner I’d wave.
    —Frank Loesser (1910–1969)

    I have lifted the veil. I have created life, wrested the secret of life from life. Now do you understand? From the lives of those who have gone before, I have created life.
