Famous quotes containing the words residents and/or famous:

    Most of the folktales dealing with the Indians are lurid and romantic. The story of the Indian lovers who were refused permission to wed and committed suicide is common to many places. Local residents point out cliffs where Indian maidens leaped to their death until it would seem that the first duty of all Indian girls was to jump off cliffs.
    —For the State of Iowa, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    A famous conductor from Rio
    Fell in love with a lady called Cleo.
    As she took down her panties,
    He said, “No andantes!
    I want it allegro con brio!”
