Famous quotes containing the words theatres and/or imperial:

    Earth has not anything to show more fair:
    Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so touching in its majesty:
    This city now doth, like a garment, wear
    The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
    Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie
    Open unto the fields and to the sky;
    All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    The imperial votaress passed on,
    In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
