Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea quotes

  • In general, Hitler embodied the view of any popular newspaper.

  • Because it is a national landmark, there is only one way to judge the Kennedy Center - against the established standard of progressive and innovative excellence in architectural design that this country is known and admired for internationally.

  • Well, I guess most people would only know me from The O.C. I did a few episodes of Gilmore Girls before that. I was also a client on a lot of lawyer shows.

  • Save me from the error of judging a church by its size, popularity or the amount of its yearly offerings.
