Linda McCartney Quotes
I would travel only by horse, if I had the choice.
I had daydreams and fantasies when I was growing up. I always wanted to live in a log cabin at the foot of a mountain. I would ride my horse to town and pick up provisions. Then return to the cabin, with a big open fire, a record player and peace.
I don't need a lot of money. Simplicity is the answer for me.
I wasn't looking for another marriage. I had been married before. He is a nice man - a geologist, an Ernest Hemingway type. But Paul and I married because of convention.

We have lasted this long close together, so we must have something going for each other.
