Famous quotes containing the words patronage of, patronage and/or charities:

    Each of the Arts whose office is to refine, purify, adorn, embellish and grace life is under the patronage of a Muse, no god being found worthy to preside over them.
    Eliza Farnham (1815–1864)

    She loved money, but could occasionally part with it, especially to men of learning, whose patronage she affected. She often conversed with them, and bewildered herself in their metaphysical disputes, which neither she nor they themselves understood.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The wonderful purity of nature at this season is a most pleasing fact.... In the bare fields and tinkling woods, see what virtue survives. In the coldest and bleakest places, the warmest charities still maintain a foothold.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
