Famous quotes containing the words lords and/or young:

    I don’t choose to say much upon this head,
    I’m a plain man, and in a single station,
    But—Oh! ye lords of ladies intellectual,
    Inform us truly, have they not hen-peck’d you all?
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    God how I hate new countries: They are older than the old, more sophisticated, much more conceited, only young in a certain puerile vanity more like senility than anything.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
