Lordship

Famous quotes containing the word lordship:

    I mean by the universe, the aggregate of all things that have being in themselves; and so do all men else. And because God has a being, it follows that he is either the whole universe, or part of it. Nor does his Lordship go about to disprove it, but only seems to wonder at it.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    The gentleman is a man of truth, lord of his own actions, and expressing that lordship in his behavior, not in any manner dependent and servile either on persons, or opinions, or possessions.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    His lordship may compel us to be equal upstairs, but there will never be equality in the servants’ hall.
    —J.M. (James Matthew)
