Prince Henry of Prussia 1862���1929

Famous quotes containing the words prince and/or prussia:

    The prince exults whomever he selects as his consort, but the queen, rather than elevating the subject of her choice, humiliates him as a man. By all that is right, a man is not intended to be the husband of his wife, but a woman is to be her husband’s wife.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    “Austria the shield and Prussia the sword!” Too bad that they are attached to the wrong arm: The right one holds the defiantly glistening shield, and the left one is supposed to wield the sword.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
