Best Of Clyde Barrow And Bonnie Parker Quotes

Love can find you in the unlikeliest of places and times.

Bonnie and Clyde were two people, who then became a couple. These two then together used to rob banks. Both came from Dallas, and their life of petty crime and little escapes from the law ensured their brutal death at the hands of the Louisiana and Texan police four years after they had begun committing their crimes. American resentment with capitalism and big finance in Depression-era America made this couple all the more attractive to people. Their death and their life immortalized them to the degree that even after many a year, no one has forgotten that and their legacy.
