Those Beautiful Diamond Rings

Famous quotes containing the words rings, beautiful and/or diamond:

    Ye say they all have passed away,
    That noble race and brave;
    That their light canoes have vanished
    From off the crested wave;
    That, mid the forests where they roamed,
    There rings no hunters’ shout;
    But their name is on your waters,
    Ye may not wash it out.
    Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791–1865)

    These great and beautiful ships, imperceptibly rocking like waddling ducks on tranquil waters, these robust ships, with their idle and nostalgic air, aren’t they telling us in a silent tongue: When are we leaving for happiness?
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    I really think that American gentlemen are the best after all, because kissing your hand may make you feel very very good but a diamond and a sapphire bracelet lasts forever.
    Anita Loos (1893–1981)
