Court House

Famous quotes containing the words court and/or house:

    Of all things in life, Mrs. Lee held this kind of court-service in contempt, for she was something more than republican—a little communistic at heart, and her only serious complaint of the President and his wife was that they undertook to have a court and to ape monarchy. She had no notion of admitting social superiority in any one, President or Prince, and to be suddenly converted into a lady-in-waiting to a small German Grand-Duchess, was a terrible blow.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Every burned book or house enlightens the world; every suppressed or expunged word reverberates through the earth from side to side.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
