10th Earl of Dundonald

Famous quotes containing the word earl:

    Young men are as apt to think themselves wise enough, as drunken men are to think themselves sober enough. They look upon spirit to be a much better thing than experience, which they call coldness. They are but half mistaken; for though spirit without experience is dangerous, experience without spirit is languid and defective.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
