Famous quotes containing the words gallery of, sidney and/or gallery:

    I should like to have seen a gallery of coronation beauties, at Westminster Abbey, confronted for a moment by this band of Island girls; their stiffness, formality, and affectation contrasted with the artless vivacity and unconcealed natural graces of these savage maidens. It would be the Venus de’ Medici placed beside a milliner’s doll.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    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)
