Famous quotes containing the word gown:
“Find out the peaceful hermitage,
The hairy gown and mossy cell,
Where I may sit and rightly spell

And every herb that sips the dew;
Till old experience do attain
To something like prophetic strain.
These pleasures Melancholy give,
And I with thee will choose to live.”
—John Milton (16081674)
