What is earthly concern?

Famous quotes containing the words concern and/or earthly:

    What right those who govern have to govern they don’t question, they just govern. Whether the people have a right to depose them that doesn’t concern them. All they are concerned with is that the people will not be tempted to depose them.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    That perfect bliss and sole felicity,
    The sweet fruition of an earthly crown.
