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

    If it were worth while to argue a paradox, one might maintain that nature regards the female as the essential, the male as the superfluity of her world. Perhaps the best starting-point for study of the Virgin would be a practical acquaintance with bees, and especially with queen bees.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    He held the world upon his nose
    And this-a-way he gave a fling.
    His robes and symbols, ai-hi-hi
    And that-a-way he twirled the thing.
    Sombre as fir-trees, liquid cats
    Moved in the grass without a sound.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    My generation had Doris Day as a role model, then Gloria Steinem—then Princess Diana. We are the most confused generation.
    Erica Jong (b. 1942)
