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

    Our medieval historians who prefer to rely as much as possible on official documents because the chronicles are unreliable, fall thereby into an occasionally dangerous error. The documents tell us little about the difference in tone which separates us from those times; they let us forget the fervent pathos of medieval life.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    These are not the artificial forests of an English king,—a royal preserve merely. Here prevail no forest laws but those of nature. The aborigines have never been dispossessed, nor nature disforested.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It takes a heap o’ children to make a home that’s true,
    And home can be a palace grand, or just a plain, old shoe;
    But if it has a mother dear, and a good old dad or two,
    Why, that’s the sort of good old home for good old me and you.
    Louis Untermeyer (1885–1977)
