Famous quotes containing the words heaven, jackie and/or wilson:

    Lift every voice and sing till earth and heaven ring,
    ring with the harmonies of liberty.

    Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.

    I have nothing against the Queen of England. Even in my heart I never resented her for not being Jackie Kennedy. She is, to my mind, a very gallant lady, victimized by whoever it is who designs the tops of her uniforms.
    Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)

    This little world, this little state, this little commonwealth of our own....
