Famous quotes containing the words caroline and/or gordon:

    In the drawing room [of the Queen’s palace] hung a Venus and Cupid by Michaelangelo, in which, instead of a bit of drapery, the painter has placed Cupid’s foot between Venus’s thighs. Queen Caroline asked General Guise, an old connoisseur, if it was not a very fine piece? He replied “Madam, the painter was a fool, for he has placed the foot where the hand should be.”
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter,
    Sermons and soda-water the day after.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
