Combined Honours

Famous quotes containing the words combined and/or honours:

    A taste for drink, combined with gout,
    Had doubled him up forever.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    Come hither, all ye empty things,
    Ye bubbles rais’d by breath of Kings;
    Who float upon the tide of state,
    Come hither, and behold your fate.
    Let pride be taught by this rebuke,
    How very mean a thing’s a Duke;
    From all his ill-got honours flung,
    Turn’d to that dirt from whence he sprung.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
