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

    It is the highest and most legitimate pride of an Englishman to have the letters M.P. written after his name. No selection from the alphabet, no doctorship, no fellowship, be it of ever so learned or royal a society, no knightship,—not though it be of the Garter,—confers so fair an honour.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    The academy is not paradise. But learning is a place where paradise can be created.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)

    You know, he wanted to shoot the Royal Family, abolish marriage, and put everybody who’d been to public school in a chain gang. Yeah, he was a idealist, your dad was.
    David Mercer, British screenwriter, and Karel Reisz. Mrs. Dell (Irene Handl)
