Famous quotes containing the words loesser and/or frank:

    That little kiss you stole held all my heart and soul.
    —Frank Loesser (1910–1969)

    I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.
    —Anne Frank (1929–1945)
