Famous quotes containing the word ices:

    When all who had money and leisure
    Grew rural o’er ices and wines,
    All pleasantly toiling for pleasure,
    All hungrily pining for pines,
    And making of beautiful speeches,
    And marring of beautiful shows,
    And feeding on delicate peaches,
    And treading on delicate toes.
    Winthrop Mackworth Praed (1802–1839)
