Famous quotes containing the word mistress:
“So, when my mistress shall be seen
In form and beauty of her mind,
By virtue first, then choice, a queen,”
—Sir Henry Wotton (15681639)
“The lover never sees personal resemblances in his mistress to her kindred or to others. His friends find in her a likeness to her mother, or her sisters, or to persons not of her blood. The lover sees no resemblance except to summer evenings and diamond mornings, to rainbows and the song of birds.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Mrs. de Winter: Mrs. Danvers must be furious with me.
Maxim de Winter: Oh, hang Mrs. Danvers! Why on earth should you be frightened of her? You behave more like an upstairs maid or something, not like the mistress of the house at all.
Mrs. de Winter: Yes, I know I do. But I feel so uncomfortable. I try my best every day, but its very difficult with people looking you up and down as if you were a prize cow.”
—Robert E. Sherwood (18961955)
