Famous quotes containing the word queen:

    The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, began screaming “Off with her head! Off with—”
    “Nonsense!” said Alice loudly and decidedly, and the Queen was silent.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    on the ground queen awaiting queen.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
