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

    See the kind seed-receiving earth
    To every grain affords a birth:
    On her no showers unwelcome fall,
    Her willing womb retains ‘em all,
    And shall my Caelia be confined?
    No, live up to thy mighty mind,
    And be the mistress of Mankind!
    John Wilmot, 2d Earl Of Rochester (1647–1680)

    A mistress should be like a little country retreat near the town, not to dwell in constantly, but only for a night and away.
    William Wycherley (1640–1716)

    No beauty she doth miss,
    When all her robes are on;
    But Beauty’s self she is,
    When all her robes are gone.
    —Unknown. My Love in Her Attire (l. 5–8)

    I know of the sleepy country, where swans fly round
    Coupled with golden chains, and sing as they fly.
    A king and a queen are wandering there, and the sound
    Has made them so happy and hopeless, so deaf and so blind
    With wisdom, they wander till all the years have gone by....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
