Famous quotes containing the word pageant:

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
    As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
    Are melted into air, into thin air.
    And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
    The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
    The solemn temples, the great globe itself—
    Yea, all which it inherit—shall dissolve
    And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
    Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
    As dreams are made on, and our little life
    Is rounded with a sleep.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The intellectual man requires a fine bait; the sots are easily amused. But everybody is drugged with his own frenzy, and the pageant marches at all hours, with music and banner and badge.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    No Life can pompless pass away—
    The lowliest career
    To the same Pageant wends its way
    As that exalted here—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
