Famous quotes containing the word peacock:

    Ancient sculpture is the true school of modesty. But where the Greeks had modesty, we have cant; where they had poetry, we have cant; where they had patriotism, we have cant; where they had anything that exalts, delights, or adorns humanity, we have nothing but cant, cant, cant.
    —Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866)

    The rich man goes out yachting,
    Where sanctity can’t pursue him;
    The poor goes afloat
    In a fourpenny boat,
    Where the bishop groans to view him.
    —Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866)

    Marriage may often be a stormy lake, but celibacy is almost always a muddy horsepond.
    —Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866)
