Famous quotes containing the word ceremonies:

    Society is frivolous, and shreds its day into scraps, its conversation into ceremonies and escapes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All ceremonies are in themselves very silly things; but yet, a man of the world should know them. They are the outworks of Manners and Decency, which would be too often broken in upon, if it were not for that defence, which keeps the enemy at a proper distance.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    In ceremonies of the horsemen,
    Even the pawn must hold a grudge.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)
