It seems that when Zinka told people in 1965 that she was going to retire, another Met soprano (don't know who) said, "Zinka, I could NEVER think of retiring."   Zinka's reply, "VELL, I TINK YOU SHOULD TINK ABOUT IT!"    I'm surprised that no one has written a book about Milanov.  I hear she was a real character --------------- and a handful.
