Quotes

"I took the examiners out to the city lake two evenings after supper to fish a little. Neither of them had ever caught a bass and I was very anxious for them to snag one. Sure enough the senior examiner had the good luck to get one and you should have seen him getting to the bank with him. He had on my rubber boots and was out in the water quite a ways and I though he was going to wreck the whole outfit. I ran around where he stood on the bank with his fish and he was so excited that he could hardly get this breath. The fish was a rather small one 2 1/2 lbs, but he was a fighter. He came out of that water and stood on his tail and shook his head two or three times, trying to get loose from that plug but he had him hooked safe."
"During practice, we did a lot of horsing around. That did not take place that night. We were not allowed to fire unless fired upon. The ships in the harbor were keeping a constant bombardment of the beach and cliffs. Looking at the carnage on the beach during the day was unbearable, particularly to the eyes of a 19-year-old. I kept thinking that war is hell. Why do human beings act the way they do? Is this all necessary?"
...She immediately alerted her parents, too. "I would not have compromised. I strongly feel one should not give upup on one's democratic right" she says
Indeed, the actress Angela Lansbury, also 88, who came face to face with the Queen when she collected her DBE this week, tells me: "She’s clearly fighting fit. She has that incredible stamina and that flawless complexion. She’s a marvel." It takes one remarkable old trouper to recognise another
