Famous quotes containing the words sidney and/or mary:

    Nor envy’s snaky eye, finds harbour here,
    Nor flatterers’ venomous insinuations,
    Nor cunning humorists’ puddled opinions,
    Nor courteous ruin of proffered usury,
    Nor time prattled away, cradle of ignorance,
    Nor causeless duty, nor comber of arrogance,
    Nor trifling title of vanity dazzleth us,
    Nor golden manacles stand for a paradise;
    —Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
