King Edward VII

Famous quotes containing the words king, edward and/or vii:

    I believe everything to be just when a king ordains it.
    Pierre Corneille (1606–1684)

    ... the moment we try to fix our attention upon consciousness and to see what, distinctly, it is, it seems to vanish: it seems as if we had before us a mere emptiness. When we try to introspect the sensation of blue, all we can see is the blue; the other element is as if it were diaphanous. Yet it can be distinguished if we look attentively enough, and know that there is something to look for.
    —George Edward Moore (1873–1958)

    I cannot be indifferent to the assassination of a member of my profession, We should be obliged to shut up business if we, the Kings, were to consider the assassination of Kings as of no consequence at all.
    —Edward VII (1841–1910)
