Famous quotes containing the words bronze and/or gilt:

    What will our children remember of us, ten, fifteen years from now? The mobile we bought or didn’t buy? Or the tone in our voices, the look in our eyes, the enthusiasm for life—and for them—that we felt? They, and we, will remember the spirit of things, not the letter. Those memories will go so deep that no one could measure it, capture it, bronze it, or put it in a scrapbook.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)

    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)
