Famous quotes containing the words teeth and/or crowned:

    I’d like to live another hundred years yet—and I don’t know but I will, too. My teeth are good, and if I can get enough to eat, I don’t know why I should die. There’s no use in dying—you ain’t good for anything after you are dead.
    Sylvia Dubois (1788?–1889)

    When you’re crowned Miss America, they put you up on a pedestal. People really look up to you and they think you’re perfect. They think that you have everything that you’ve ever wanted or dreamed about in life.
    Kaye Lani Rae Rafko (b. c. 1968)
