Famous quotes containing the words mistress of, mistress, robes and/or queen:

    Let me see, what am I to buy for our sheep-shearing feast? Three pound of sugar, five pound of currants, rice—what will this sister of mine do with rice? But my father hath made her mistress of the feast, and she lays it on.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
    O stay and hear, your true love’s coming,
    That can sing both high and low.
    Trip no further, pretty sweeting.
    Journeys end in lovers meeting,
    Every wise man’s son doth know.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    In the learned journal, in the influential newspaper, I discern no form; only some irresponsible shadow; oftener some monied corporation, or some dangler, who hopes, in the mask and robes of his paragraph, to pass for somebody. But through every clause and part of speech of the right book I meet the eyes of the most determined men; his force and terror inundate every word: the commas and dashes are alive; so that the writing is athletic and nimble,—can go far and live long.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Ah petal, dust and wind-fall
    on the ground queen awaiting queen.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
