Famous quotes containing the words detective and/or nameless:

    The best part of myself, that’s what you are. Do you think I’m going to leave it to the vulgar pawing of a second-rate detective who thinks you’re a “dame”? Do you think I could bear the thought of him holding you in his arms, kissing you, loving you?
    Jay Dratler, U.S. screenwriter, Samuel Hoffenstein (1889–1947)

    In some unused lagoon, some nameless bay,
    On sluggish, lonesome waters, anchor’d near the shore,
    An old, dismasted, gray and batter’d ship, disabled, done,
    After free voyages to all the seas of earth, haul’d up at last and
    hawser’d tight,
    Lies rusting, mouldering.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
