Famous quotes containing the words society and/or royal:

    In the latter part of the seventeenth century, according to the historian of Dunstable, “Towns were directed to erect ‘a cage’ near the meeting-house, and in this all offenders against the sanctity of the Sabbath were confined.” Society has relaxed a little from its strictness, one would say, but I presume that there is not less religion than formerly. If the ligature is found to be loosened in one part, it is only drawn the tighter in another.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    All hail! the pow’r of Jesus’ Name;
    Let angels prostrate fall;
    Bring forth the Royal Diadem,
    To crown Him Lord of all.
    Edward Perronet (1726–1792)
