Clunes Victoria Present

Famous quotes containing the words present and/or victoria:

    Were the whole realm of nature mine,
    That were a present far too small.
    Love so amazing, so divine,
    Demands my soul, my life, my all.
    Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

    Sometimes my wife complains that she’s overwhelmed with work and just can’t take one of the kids, for example, to a piano lesson. I’ll offer to do it for her, and then she’ll say, “No, I’ll do it.” We have to negotiate how much I trespass into that mother role—it’s not given up easily.
    —Anonymous Father. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 3 (1992)
