Famous quotes containing the words ring and/or class:

    Ring out, ring out thy mournful rhymes,
    But ring the fuller minstrel in.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    There is a certain class of people who prefer to say that their fathers came down in the world through their own follies than to boast that they rose in the world through their own industry and talents. It is the same shabby-genteel sentiment, the same vanity of birth which makes men prefer to believe that they are degenerated angels rather than elevated apes.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)
