Famous quotes containing the words sidney, sir and/or philip:

    Nor envy’s snaky eye, finds harbour here,
    Nor flatterers’ venomous insinuations,
    Nor cunning humorists’ puddled opinions,
    Nor courteous ruin of proffered usury,
    Nor time prattled away, cradle of ignorance,
    Nor causeless duty, nor comber of arrogance,
    Nor trifling title of vanity dazzleth us,
    Nor golden manacles stand for a paradise;
    —Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)

    Till Sir John fell to the ground,
    And there was a knife in Sir Willie’s pouch,
    Gied him a deadlie wound.

    Highway, since you my chief Parnassus be,
    And that my Muse, to some ears not unsweet,
    Tempers her words to trampling horses’ feet
    More oft than to a chamber-melody,
    —Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
