Prince Daniel

Famous quotes containing the words prince and/or daniel:

    The prince in disguise makes the most charming beggar in the world, no doubt; but that is because—as all fairy-tales from the beginning of time have taught us—the prince wears his rags as if they were purple. And, to do that, he not only must once have worn purple, but must never forget the purple that he has worn. And to the argument that all cannot wear purple, I can ... only reply that that seems to me to be no reason why all should wear rags.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    Are they shadows that we see?
    And can shadows pleasures give?
    Pleasures only shadows be,
    Cast by bodies we conceive;
    —Samuel Daniel (1562–1619)
