1st Earl of St Vincent

Famous quotes containing the words earl and/or vincent:

    Women of fashion and character—I do not mean absolutely unblemished—are a necessary ingredient in the composition of good company; the attention which they require, and which is always paid them by well-bred men, keeps up politeness, and gives a habit of good-breeding; whereas men, when they live together without the lenitive of women in company, are apt to grow careless, negligent, and rough among one another.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    ... there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take,
    No matter where it’s going.
    —Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
