Famous quotes containing the words institution and/or royal:

    When God desires to destroy a thing, he entrusts its destruction to the thing itself. Every bad institution of this world ends by suicide.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    High from the summit of a craggy cliff,
    Hung o’er the deep, such as amazing frowns
    On utmost Kilda’s shore, whose lonely race
    Resign the setting sun to Indian worlds,
    The royal eagle draws his vigorous young
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
