Famous quotes containing the word honourable:

    Yes, I am a Jew, and when the ancestors of the right honourable gentleman were brutal
    savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)

    The right honourable gentleman caught the Whigs bathing, and walked away with their clothes. He has left them in the full enjoyment of their liberal positions, and he is himself a strict conservative of their garments.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)

    We mustn’t complain too much of being comedians—it’s an honourable profession. If only we could be good ones the world might gain at least a sense of style. We have failed—that’s all. We are bad comedians, we aren’t bad men.
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)
