Famous quotes containing the words bronze and/or gilt:

    Ask us, ask us whether with the worldless rose
    Our hearts shall fail us; come demanding
    Whether there shall be lofty or long standing
    When the bronze annals of the oak-tree close.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    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)
