Famous quotes containing the words faire, bristol and/or renaissance:

    Followe thy faire sunne, unhappy shadowe,
    Though thou be blacke as night,
    And she made all of light,
    Yet follow thy faire sun, unhappie shadowe.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)

    It’s of a rich squire in Bristol doth dwell,
    There are ladies of honour that love him well,
    But all was in vain, in vain was said,
    For he was in love with a charming milkmaid.
    —Unknown. Squire and Milkmaid; or, Blackberry Fold (l. 1–4)

    People nowadays like to be together not in the old-fashioned way of, say, mingling on the piazza of an Italian Renaissance city, but, instead, huddled together in traffic jams, bus queues, on escalators and so on. It’s a new kind of togetherness which may seem totally alien, but it’s the togetherness of modern technology.
    —J.G. (James Graham)
