Famous quotes containing the words palace and/or sports:
“It takes a heap o children to make a home thats true,
And home can be a palace grand, or just a plain, old shoe;
But if it has a mother dear, and a good old dad or two,
Why, thats the sort of good old home for good old me and you.”
—Louis Untermeyer (18851977)
“Even from their infancy we frame them to the sports of love: their instruction, behaviour, attire, grace, learning and all their words aimeth only at love, respects only affection. Their nurses and their keepers imprint no other thing in them.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
