I like 'Goodbye My Lover' because it's a really personal song and I recorded it in my landlady's bathroom in Los Angeles. She had a piano in there and for me listening back to it, it actually sounds like the voice I hear in my head. It's so close to what I can imagine. James Blunt
My landlady, who is only a tailor's widow, reads her Milton; and tells me, that her late husband first fell in love with her on this very account: because she read Milton with such proper emphasis. Karl Philipp Moritz
To be famous, in fact, one has only to kill one's landlady. Albert Camus
Where does a man get inspiration to write a song like that? Well, he gets it from the landlady once a month. John Michael Hayes
The landlady of a boarding-house is a parallelogram - that is, an oblong angular figure, which cannot be described, but which is equal to anything. Stephen Leacock
