Famous quotes containing the words manning and/or frankie:

    The charming landscape which I saw this morning is indubitably made up of some twenty or thirty farms. Miller owns this field, Locke that, and Manning the woodland beyond. But none of them owns the landscape. There is property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all parts, that is, the poet. This is the best part of these men’s farms, yet to this their warranty-deeds give no title.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Frankie and Johnny were lovers, O lordy how they could love,
    Swore to be true to each other, true as the stars above;
    He was her man but he done her wrong.
    —Unknown. Frankie and Johnny (l. 1–3)
