Prince of Cond

Famous quotes containing the words prince of and/or prince:

    I will catch Christ with a greased worm,
    And when the Prince of Darkness stalks
    My bloodstream to its Stygian term . . .
    On water the Man-Fisher walks.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    It is now many years that men have resorted to the forest for fuel and the materials of the arts: the New Englander and the New Hollander, the Parisian and the Celt, the farmer and Robin Hood, Goody Blake and Harry Gill; in most parts of the world, the prince and the peasant, the scholar and the savage, equally require still a few sticks from the forest to warm them and cook their food. Neither could I do without them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
