Famous quotes containing the words venus and/or bay:

    In the drawing room [of the Queen’s palace] hung a Venus and Cupid by Michaelangelo, in which, instead of a bit of drapery, the painter has placed Cupid’s foot between Venus’s thighs. Queen Caroline asked General Guise, an old connoisseur, if it was not a very fine piece? He replied “Madam, the painter was a fool, for he has placed the foot where the hand should be.”
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    A great work by an Englishman is like a great battle won by England. It is an unfading bay tree.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)
