Famous quotes containing the word gilt:

    We are but warriors for the working day.
    Our gayness and our gilt are all besmirched
    With rainy marching in the painful field.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    One touch of nature makes the whole world kin,
    That all, with one consent, praise new-born gauds.
    And give to dust that is a little gilt
    More laud than gilt o’er dusted;
    The present eye praises the present object.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Edith: This complete loveliness will fade. And we shall forget what it was like.
    Edward: Edith, don’t.
    Edith: Oh, it’s bound to. Just a few years and the gilt wears off the gingerbread.
    Edward: Darling, answer me one thing truthfully. Have you ever seen gingerbread with gilt on it?
    Edith: [laughing] Fool!
    Edward: Then the whole argument is disposed of.
    Reginald Berkeley (1890 N1935)
