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

    Since ... six weeks ago, there has been no day in which I have not had letters and visits on the subject of my nomination for the Presidency.... I say very little. I have in no instance encouraged any one to work to that end.... I have said the whole talk about me is on the score of availability. Let availability do the work then.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    I realized early on that the academy and the literary world alike—and I don’t think there really is a distinction between the two—are always dominated by fools, knaves, charlatans and bureaucrats. And that being the case, any human being, male or female, of whatever status, who has a voice of her or his own, is not going to be liked.
    Harold Bloom (b. 1930)

    Farewell the neighing steed and the shrill trump,
    The spirit-stirring drum, th’ ear-piercing fife,
    The royal banner and all quality,
    Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
