The presence of unattached ladies, bachelors, flirts, match makers gave to Simla its early reputation.... Early evenings on the Mall, was the customary place for building acquaintances.... Eligibles... socially desirables... all were on the Mall .
The children eat and wriggle and laugh,The two old ladies stroke their silk;But the cat is grown small and thin with desire,Transformed to a creeping lust for milk.harold monro
the Cambridge ladies who live in furnished souls are unbeautiful and have comfortable minds
In company with several other old ladies of both sexes.charles dickens
London, thou art of townes A per se. Soveraign of cities, someliest in sight, Of high renoun, riches, and royaltie; Of lordis, barons, and many goodly knyght; Of most delectable lusty ladies bright; Of famous prelatis in habitis clericall; Of merchauntis full of sybstaunce and myght; London, thou art the flour of Cities all.
The reason why so few marriages are happy, is, because young ladies spend their time in making nets, not in making cages.jonathan swift
Although Marycannot be a model for the New Woman, a goddess is better than no goddess at all, for the sombre-suited masculine world of the Protestant religion is altogether too much like a gentlemen's club to which the ladies are only admitted on special days.
“…reminds us why these two well-dressed, slightly chaotic, posh ladies are so entertaining”susannah constantine
Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity. The modern champions of communism have selected this as the time, and ladies and gentlemen, the chips are down — they are truly down.Joseph McCarthy
What I demand you is almost impossible, for one has to defeat our history. And nevertheless, if one does not defeat it, one has to know a rule that imposes itself: nationalism, this is war! War is not solely past, it can be our future, and these are you, ladies and gentlemen deputies, who are the guardians of our peace, our security and our future.françois mitterrand
The lords and ladies pass a rulingThat sons and girls go hand in landFrom good stock and the best breedingPaid for by the servile class.paul weller
The ladies call him sweet; The stairs, as he treads on them, kiss his feet.william shakespeare
"In twenty years," I said, smiling at her tears, "a man grows humble, Mary. I have stored within me a great fund of affection, with nobody to give it to, and I swear to you, on the word of a soldier, that if there is one of those ladies who can be got to care for me I shall be very proud." Despite her semblance of delight I knew that she was wondering at me, and I wondered at myself, but it was true.j. m. barrie
"Everyone is bisexual’: “I’ve always had as many powerful, creative ladies in my life as I have men, and you could probably describe some of those relationships as romantic. I think everyone’s bisexual to some degree or another; it’s just a question of whether or not you choose to recognise it and embrace it. Personally, I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You’d be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavours.”björk guðmundsdóttir
She sits tormenting every guest, Nor gives her tongue one moment's rest, In phrases batter'd, stale, and trite, Which modern ladies call polite.jonathan swift
I care not for these ladies, That must be wooed and prayed; Give me kind Amaryllis, The wanton country maid. Nature art disdaineth; Her beauty is her own.thomas campion
I used to look down upon those ladies who had given themselves to Allah's Apostle and I used to say, "Can a lady give herself (to a man)?" But when Allah revealed: "You (O Muhammad) can postpone (the turn of) whom you will of them (your wives), and you may receive any of them whom you will; and there is no blame on you if you invite one whose turn you have set aside (temporarily).' (33.51) I said (to the Prophet), "I feel that your Lord hastens in fulfilling your wishes and desires."
Elder ladies, up earlier, had coffee before; For themselves they've prepared now a tasty encore, A concoction from heated, with cream thickened, beer, In which curds, densely floating, of cream cheese appear. For men there's a choice of smoked meats on a platter: There is tongue , savouries, sausage , and half-geese well fattened, All first-rate, all by secret house recipe cured, Long in juniper smoke in the chimney matured, At the end, as the last course, 'zrazy' were served. Thuswise was in the Judge's house breakfast observed.
ladies and gentlemen, unless the play is stopped, the child cannot possibly go on.john philip kemble
ladies, just a little more virginity, if you don't mind.
I dare boldly conclude that the most valiant armie of the best approved soldiers, (yea though consisting of lovers themselves, and that giving battaile in the presence of their ladies and Mistresses) may easily even with a small band of ingenious scholars and Artists be utterly overthrown and vanquished.
ladies and gentlemen, I have a grave announcement to make. Incredible as it may seem, strange beings who landed in New Jersey tonight are the vanguard of an invading army from Mars.orson welles
If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies we are determined to foment a Rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice, or Representation.Abigail Adams
With silver drops the mead yet spread for ruth, In active games of nimbleness and strength, Where we did strain, trained with swarms of youth, Our tender limbs that yet shot up in length. The secret groves, which oft we made resound Of pleasant plaint, and of our ladies' praise; Recording oft what grace each one had found, What hope of speed, what dread of long delays.howard, henry, earl of surrey
The [sexual harassment] situation has gotten so out of hand that, in 1993, in one of the first British cases, a plumber was fired for continuing to use the traditional term "ballcock" for the toilet flotation unit, instead of the new politically correct term, sanitized of sexual suggestiveness. This is insane. We are back to the Victorian era, when table legs had to be draped lest they put the thought of ladies' legs into someone's dirty mind.camille paglia
