Famous quotes containing the word puppet:

    The pretty fellows you speak of, I own entertain me sometimes, but is it impossible to be diverted with what one despises? I can laugh at a puppet show, at the same time I know there is nothing in it worth my attention or regard.
    Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (1689–1762)
