Famous quotes containing the words market and/or lace:
“the old palaces, the wallets of the tourists,
the Common Market or the smart cafés,
the boulevards in the graceful evening,
the cliff-hangers, the scientists,
and the little shops raising their prices
mean nothing to me.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Will you buy any tape,
Or lace for your cape,
My dainty duck, my dear-a?
Any silk, and thread,
And toys for your head,
Of the newst and finest, finest wear-a?
Come to the pedlar;
Moneys a meddler,
That doth utter all mens ware-a.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
