Famous quotes containing the words thompson and/or larry:

    I stand amid the dust o’ the mounded years—
    My mangled youth lies dead beneath the heap,
    My days have crackled and gone up in smoke,
    Have puffed and burst as sun-starts on a stream.
    —Francis Thompson (1859–1907)

    That’s the nice thing about this job. You get to quote yourself shamelessly. If you don’t, Larry Speakes will.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
