Famous quotes containing the words barons, baron and/or napier:

    We live by our imaginations, by our admirations, by our sentiments. The child walks amid heaps of illusions, which he does not like to have disturbed. The boy, how sweet to him his fancy! how dear the story of barons and battles! What a hero he is, whilst he feeds on his heroes! What a debt is his to imaginative books!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    As ye of clay were cast by kind,
    So shall ye waste to dust.
    Thomas Vaux, 2d Baron Vaux Of Harrowden (1510–1566)

    Parenting is a profoundly reciprocal process: we, the shapers of our children’s lives, are also being shaped. As we struggle to be parents, we are forced to encounter ourselves; and if we are willing to look at what is happening between us and our children, we may learn how we came to be who we are.
    —Augustus Y. Napier (20th century)
