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

    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 it’s very difficult with people looking you up and down as if you were a prize cow.
    Robert E. Sherwood (1896–1955)

    Trying to avoid
    Ideas, as in this poem? But we
    Go back to them as to a wife, leaving
    The mistress we desire?
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind? What then did you go out to see? Someone dressed in soft robes? Look, those who wear soft robes are in royal palaces. What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 11:7-9.

    Jesus speaking about John the Baptist.

    It is better to pay court to a queen ... than to worship, as we too often do, some unworthy person whose wealth is his sole passport into society. I believe that a habit of respect is good for the human race.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)
