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)

    The greatest impediments to changes in our traditional roles seem to lie not in the visible world of conscious intent, but in the murky realm of the unconscious mind.
    —Augustus Y. Napier (20th century)
