Quotations[edit]

  • 1590, Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene: I:iv:16:
    As faire Aurora in her purple pall,
    Out of the East the dawning day doth call
  • 1904 George Bernard Shaw, How He Lied to Her Husband:
    How will they know! Why, my name is all over them: my silly, unhappy name. Oh, if I had only been christened Mary Jane, or Gladys, Muriel, or Beatrice, or Francesca, or Guinevere, or something quite common. But Aurora! Aurora! I'm the only Aurora in London; and everybody knows it. I believe I'm the only Aurora in the world. And it's so horribly easy to rhyme to it!
