Famous quotes containing the word kingdom:

    It is easier to govern a kingdom than to rule a family.
    Chinese proverb.

    In the kingdom of consumption the citizen is king. A democratic monarchy: equality before consumption, fraternity in consumption, and freedom through consumption. The dictatorship of consumer goods has finally destroyed the barriers of blood, lineage and race.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
