Famous quotes containing the word titles:

    We have to be despised by somebody whom we regard as above us, or we are not happy; we have to have somebody to worship and envy, or we cannot be content. In America we manifest this in all the ancient and customary ways. In public we scoff at titles and hereditary privilege, but privately we hanker after them, and when we get a chance we buy them for cash and a daughter.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I have known a German Prince with more titles than subjects, and a Spanish nobleman with more names than shirts.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1728–1774)

    Lear. Dost thou call me fool, boy?
    Fool. All thy other titles thou hast given away; that thou wast born with.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
