Famous quotes containing the word bachelors:

    Flowers so strictly belong to youth, that we adult men soon come to feel, that their beautiful generations concern not us: we have had our day; now let the children have theirs. The flowers jilt us, and we are old bachelors with our ridiculous tenderness.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Nowadays, all the married men live like bachelors, and all the bachelors like married men.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Though bachelors be the strongest stakes, married men are the best binders, in the hedge of the commonwealth.
    Thomas Fuller (1608–1661)
