Famous quotes containing the words robes and/or dragon:

    In the learned journal, in the influential newspaper, I discern no form; only some irresponsible shadow; oftener some monied corporation, or some dangler, who hopes, in the mask and robes of his paragraph, to pass for somebody. But through every clause and part of speech of the right book I meet the eyes of the most determined men; his force and terror inundate every word: the commas and dashes are alive; so that the writing is athletic and nimble,—can go far and live long.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    And then at last our bliss
    Full and perfect is,
    But now begins; for from this happy day
    The old Dragon underground,
    In straiter limits bound,
    Not half so far casts his usurped sway,
    And, wroth to see his kingdom fail,
    Swinges the scaly horror of his folded tail.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
