Famous quotes containing the words maid and/or beggar:

    None but a maid is roused by a love song. And this was a maid, an old maid.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)

    and she at the moon, his face,
    while crows are pecking
    at her ladle
    and his begging-bowl.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
