Famous quotes containing the word earl:
“Remember, that when I speak of pleasures I always mean the elegant pleasures of a rational being, and not the brutal ones of a swine. I mean la bonne chère, short of gluttony; wine, infinitely short of drunkenness; play, without the least gaming; and gallantry, without debauchery.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
