Famous quotes containing the words prizes, royal and/or society:

    She prizes not such trifles as these are.
    The gifts she looks from me are packed and locked
    Up in my heart, which I have given already,
    But not delivered.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Dearest dealer,
    I with my royal straight flush,
    love you so for your wild card,
    that untamable, eternal, gut-driven, ha-ha
    and lucky love.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The truth is that every intelligent man, as you well know, dreams of being a gangster and ruling over society through violence alone. Since this is not as easy as the novels would have us believe, people generally resort to politics and join the cruelest party.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
