Who is earl felton?

Famous quotes containing the words earl and/or felton:

    When a man of sense happens to be in that disagreeable situation in which he is obliged to ask himself more than once, What shall I do? he will answer himself, Nothing. When his reason points out to him no good way, he will stop short, and wait for light. A little busy mind runs on at all events, must be doing; and, like a blind horse, fears no dangers, because he sees none. Il faut scavoir s’ennu├»er.*
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The utter helplessness of a conquered people is perhaps the most tragic feature of a civil war or any other sort of war.
    —Rebecca Latimer Felton (1835–1930)
