Baroness Home of The Hirsel

Famous quotes containing the words baroness and/or home:

    Your mock saint who stands in a niche is not a woman if she have not suffered, still less a woman if she have not sinned. Fall at the feet of your idol as you wish, but drag her down to your level after that—the only level she should ever reach, that of your heart.
    Emmuska, Baroness Orczy (1865–1947)

    Our instructed vagrancy, which has hardly time to linger by the hedgerows, but runs away early to the tropics, and is at home with palms and banyans—which is nourished on books of travel, and stretches the theatre of its imagination to the Zambesi.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
