Famous quotes containing the word upper:

    The stately Homes of England,
    How beautiful they stand,
    To prove the upper classes
    Have still the upper hand.
    Noël Coward (1899–1973)

    You doubt we read the stars on high,
    Nathless we read your fortunes true;
    The stars may hide in the upper sky,
    But without glass we fathom you.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The enemy are no match for us in a fair fight.... The young men ... of the upper class are kind-hearted, good-natured fellows, who are unfit as possible for the business they are in. They have courage but no endurance, enterprise, or energy. The lower class are cowardly, cunning, and lazy. The height of their ambition is to shoot a Yankee from some place of safety.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
