Famous quotes containing the word princess:

    How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!
    —Bible: Hebrew Lamentations 1:1.

    Said of Jerusalem.

    We are eager to tunnel under the Atlantic and bring the Old World some weeks nearer to the New; but perchance the first news that will leak through into the broad, flapping American ear will be that the Princess Adelaide has the whooping cough.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    He is blowing on light
    each time for the first time.
    His fingers cover the mouths of all the sopranos,
    each a princess in an exact position.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
