Quotations

  • 1590, Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene: III:iii:56
    Faire Angela (quoth she) men do her call, / No whit lesse faire, then terrible in fight: / She hath the leading of a Martiall / And mighty people, dreaded more then all / The other Saxons, which do for her sake / And love, themselves of her name Angles call.

    And the child was named Angela for the Angelus which rang the midnight hour, the New Year, the minute of her coming and because she was a little angel anyway.
