Quotations
  • 1776 Adam Fitz-Adam: The World of Adam Fitz-Adam. Edinburgh, Apollo Press 1776: Numb. 187. Thursday, July 29, 1756:
    By their dresses, their names, and the airs of quality they give themselves, I am rendered ridiculous among all my acquaintance. My wife, who is a very plain good woman, and whose name is Amey, has been new-christened, and is called Amelia; and my little daughter, a child of a year old, is no longer Polly, but Maria.
  • 1957 Arthur Laurents/Stephen Sondheim/Leonard Bernstein: West Side Story: Maria ( a song):
    I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
    And suddenly I found how wonderful a sound can be!
    Maria! Say it loud and there's music playing -
    Say it soft and it's almost like praying
