Famous quotes containing the words academy, royal and/or spanish:

    When the State wishes to endow an academy or university, it grants it a tract of forest land: one saw represents an academy, a gang, a university.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    An Englishman, methinks,—not to speak of other European nations,—habitually regards himself merely as a constituent part of the English nation; he is a member of the royal regiment of Englishmen, and is proud of his company, as he has reason to be proud of it. But an American—one who has made tolerable use of his opportunities—cares, comparatively, little about such things, and is advantageously nearer to the primitive and the ultimate condition of man in these respects.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Wheeler: Aren’t you the fellow the Mexicans used to call “Brachine”?
    Dude: That’s nearly right. Only it’s “Borracho.”
    Wheeler: I don’t think I ever seen you like this before.
    Dude: You mean sober. You’re probably right. You know what “Borracho” means?
    Wheeler: My Spanish ain’t too good.
    Dude: It means drunk. No, if the name bothers ya’ they used to call me Dude.
    Jules Furthman (1888–1960)
