Quotes About Mouche

"Alas! replied Maître Mouche, she must be trained to take her part in the struggle of life.

Quotes About Ava Gardner

"In the picture, Ava Gardners tousled black hair obscured her right eye, and her full, closed lips were pulled slightly to the right, resulting in something less than a smile. They looked as if theyd been smeared shut with red paint, though the photo was in black and white.
