Famous quotes containing the words fair and/or lady:

    Thy tongue
    Makes Welsh as sweet as ditties highly penned,
    Sung by a fair queen in a summer’s bower,
    With ravishing division, to her lute.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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. 1–6)
