Famous quotes containing the words medieval, royal and/or palace:

    Nothing in medieval dress distinguished the child from the adult. In the seventeenth century, however, the child, or at least the child of quality, whether noble or middle-class, ceased to be dressed like the grown-up. This is the essential point: henceforth he had an outfit reserved for his age group, which set him apart from the adults. These can be seen from the first glance at any of the numerous child portraits painted at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
    Philippe Ariés (20th century)

    Not to these shores she came! this other Thrace,
    Environ barbarous to the royal Attic;
    How could her delicate dirge run democratic,
    Delivered in a cloudless boundless public place
    To an inordinate race?
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    You weep, you weep for the sun an Image.
    ...
    the wind calls hideously,
    woe for the children’s fate,
    woe for a palace rent,
    woe, woe for these who spent
    life-blood
    in hate.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
