Colour Breeding

Famous quotes containing the words colour and/or breeding:

    I allow a Beauty to be as much to be commended for the Elegance of her Dress, as a Wit for that of his Language; yet if she has stolen the Colour of her Ribbands from another, or had Advice about her Trimmings, I shall not allow her the Praise of Dress, any more than I would call a Plagiary an Author.
    Richard Steele (1672–1729)

    A man’s own good breeding is his best security against other people’s ill-manners.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
