Famous quotes containing the words frances and/or burney:

    The kiss of the sun for pardon,
    The song of the birds for mirth,
    One is nearer God’s Heart in a garden
    Than anywhere else on earth.
    —Dorothy Frances Gurney (1858–1932)

    This perpetual round of constrained civilities to persons quite indifferent to us, is the most provoking and tiresome thing in the world, but it is unavoidable in a country town, where everybody is known.... ‘Tis a most shocking and unworthy way of spending our precious irrecoverable time, to those who know not its value.
    —Frances Burney (1752–1840)
