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)

    Erle Douglas on his milk-white steede,
    Most like a baron bold,
    Rode foremost of his company,
    Whose armor shone like gold.
    Unknown. Chevy Chase (l. 65–68)

    Not only do our wives need support, but our children need our deep involvement in their lives. If this period [the early years] of primitive needs and primitive caretaking passes without us, it is lost forever. We can be involved in other ways, but never again on this profoundly intimate level.
    —Augustus Y. Napier (20th century)
