Famous quotes containing the words fair and/or lady:
Makes Welsh as sweet as ditties highly penned,
Sung by a fair queen in a summers bower,
With ravishing division, to her lute.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“I saw my lady weep,
And Sorrow proud to be advanced so
In those fair eyes where all perfections keep.
Her face was full of woe;
But such a woe, believe me, as wins more hearts
Than Mirth can do with her enticing parts.”
—Unknown. I Saw My Lady Weep (l. 16)
