Queen

Famous quotes containing the word queen:

    What a mysterious faculty is that queen of the faculties!
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    Most Gracious Queen, we thee implore
    To go away and sin no more,
    But if that effort be too great,
    To go away at any rate.
    —Anonymous. “On Queen Caroline,” in Diary and Correspondence of Lord Colchester (1861)

    We have defined a story as a narrative of events arranged in their time-sequence. A plot is also a narrative of events, the emphasis falling on causality. “The king died and then the queen died” is a story. “The king died, and then the queen died of grief” is a plot. The time sequence is preserved, but the sense of causality overshadows it.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)
