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

    What is the student but a lover courting a fickle mistress who ever eludes his grasp?
    Sir William Osler (1849–1919)

    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)

    I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
