Famous quotes containing the words shrine, black and/or madonna:

    The United Nations cannot do anything, and never could; it is not an animate entity or agent. It is a place, a stage, a forum and a shrine ... a place to which powerful people can repair when they are fearful about the course on which their own rhetoric seems to be propelling them.
    Conor Cruise O’Brien (b. 1917)

    A new disease? I know not, new or old,
    But it may well be called poor mortals’ plague:
    For, like a pestilence, it doth infect
    The houses of the brain ...
    Till not a thought, or motion, in the mind,
    Be free from the black poison of suspect.
    Ben Jonson (c. 1572–1637)

    In our minds lives the madonna image—the all-embracing, all- giving tranquil mother of a Raphael painting, one child at her breast, another at her feet; a woman fulfilled, one who asks nothing more than to nurture and nourish. This creature of fantasy, this myth, is the model—the unattainable ideal against which women measure, not only their performance, but their feelings about being mothers.
    Lillian Breslow Rubin (20th century)
