Beaten Rice Mixed

Famous quotes containing the words beaten, rice and/or mixed:

    I am particularly interested in the indications that the people seem to understand and approve the necessity of pursuing the course that will prevent a further effort on the part of the German peoples to continue the struggle for world domination, even though they are thoroughly beaten in this war.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    The arbitrary division of one’s life into weeks and days and hours seemed, on the whole, useless. There was but one day for the men, and that was pay day, and one for the women, and that was rent day. As for the children, every day was theirs, just as it should be in every corner of the world.
    —Alice Caldwell Rice (1870–1942)

    Love sits enthroned in Clara’s eyes,
    The Graces play her lips around,
    And in her cheeks the tendrest dyes
    Of lilly mixed with rose are found.
    Where charms so irresistless throng
    What mortal heart can try resistance?
    But ah! her nose is two feet long,
    And bids our passions keep their distance.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
