Famous quotes containing the word earl:

    The rulers of the earth are all worth knowing; they suggest moral reflections: and the respect that one naturally has for God’s vice-regents here on earth is greatly increased by acquaintance with them.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
