Famous quotes containing the word virgin:
“This is the month, and this the happy morn,
Wherein the Son of heavns eternal King,
Of wedded Maid and Virgin Mother born,
Our great redemption from above did bring.”
—John Milton (16081674)
“Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves and aspire,
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.”
—William Blake (17571827)
“If it were worth while to argue a paradox, one might maintain that nature regards the female as the essential, the male as the superfluity of her world. Perhaps the best starting-point for study of the Virgin would be a practical acquaintance with bees, and especially with queen bees.”
—Henry Brooks Adams (18381918)
