Indies Quotations

For the execution of the voyage to the Indies, I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps.
Christopher Columbus

Alice Morse Earle

I'm well-travelled so I can see places coming up. I went to St. Croix in the West Indies at Christmas and it had been hit by a really bad tornado. Values there have gone down but I guarantee they will be up again in eight years. So I'll get in now while it's cheap as chips.
Melanie Brown

Columbus did not seek a new route to the Indies in response to a majority directive.
Milton Friedman

One of the bibles of my youth was 'Birds of the West Indies,' by James Bond, a well-known ornithologist, and when I was casting about for a name for my protagonist I thought, 'My God, that's the dullest name I've ever heard,' so I appropriated it. Now the dullest name in the world has become an exciting one.
Ian Fleming
