Famous quotes containing the word earls:
“If the Christ were content with humble toilers for disciples, that wasnt good enough for our Bert. He wanted dukes half sisters and belted earls wiping his feet with their hair; grand apotheosis of the snob, to humiliate the objects of his own awe by making them venerate him.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
