Famous quotes containing the word viscount:

    It wounds a man less to confess that he has failed in any pursuit through idleness, neglect, the love of pleasure, etc., etc., which are his own faults, than through incapacity and unfitness, which are the faults of his nature.
    William Lamb Melbourne, 2nd Viscount (1779–1848)
