Wild Bill Quotes

If you walk into the front hallway of the CIA, you will see, on your left, a statue of William Wild Bill Donovan. Bill Donovan was the person who created the OSS, the Office of Strategic Services, which was Americas spy agency during World War II and then kind of morphed into whats now the CIA.
— David Ignatius —

She was the kind of elegance
That would never tarnish.
A mixture of lace and mesh,
Like a classic heirloom that begged to be worn.
She was sharp intellect and quick wit.
The type of woman that spoke her mind,
Even if it shook.
(Or even if no one was listening.)
She was beautiful.
But not someone you'd see in magazines,
Her hips were too wide, her hair a mess of wispy tendrils,
(Rather, she was actually very ordinary.)
My, was she stubborn! She'd drive you mad!
(Sometimes, you'd probably call her crazy.)
But mostly, her laughter was a joyful moments.
Like a warm towel fresh from the dryer,
Or finding a twenty-dollar bill in your winter coat.
And that was the true revelation.
That magic does exist,
It ran through her like a wild, fiery current.

— M.J. Abraham
