Famous quotes containing the word queen:

    What a mysterious faculty is that queen of the faculties!
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    Half-opening her lips to the frost’s morning sigh, how strangely the rose has smiled on a swift-fleeting day of September!
    How audacious it is to advance in stately manner before the blue-tit fluttering in the shrubs that have long lost their leaves, like a queen with the spring’s greeting on her lips;
    to bloom with steadfast hope that, parted from the cold flower-bed, she may be the last to cling, intoxicated, to a young hostess’s breast.
    Afanasi Fet (1820–1892)

    We are no more free agents than the queen of clubs when she victoriously takes prisoner the knave of hearts.
    Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (1689–1762)
