Famous quotes containing the word shenstone:

    To thee, fair Freedom! I retire
    From flattery, cards, and dice, and din:
    Nor art thou found in mansions higher
    Than the low cot, or humble inn.

    ‘Tis here with boundless pow’r I reign;
    And ev’ry health which I begin
    Converts dull port to bright champagne;
    Such Freedom crowns it, at an inn.
    —William Shenstone (1714–1763)
