Famous quotes containing the words treasure and/or sir:

    Love was as subtly catched, as a disease;
    But being got it is a treasure sweet,
    Which to defend is harder than to get:
    And ought not be profaned on either part,
    For though ‘tis got by chance,’tis kept by art.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    Perhaps believing in good design is like believing in God, it makes you an optimist.
    Terence, Sir Conran (b. 1931)
