Famous quotes containing the word duchess:

    The earth is the earth as a peasant sees it, the world is the world as a duchess sees it, and anyway a duchess would be nothing if the earth was not there as the peasant sees it.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Lady Hodmarsh and the duchess immediately assumed the clinging affability that persons of rank assume with their inferiors in order to show them that they are not in the least conscious of any difference in station between them.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)

    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
