Famous quotes containing the words police and/or royal:

    Despite your best efforts, you could not invent a better police force for literature than criticism and the author’s own conscience.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    Farewell the neighing steed and the shrill trump,
    The spirit-stirring drum, th’ ear-piercing fife,
    The royal banner and all quality,
    Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
