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

    This queen will live. Nature awakes,
    A warmth breathes out of her. She hath not been
    Entranced above five hours. See how she ‘gins
    To blow into life’s flower again.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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)

    At the next town
    the local princess was having a contest.
    A common way for princesses to marry.
    Fifty men had perished,
    gargling the sea like soup.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
