Who is earl felton?

Famous quotes containing the words earl and/or felton:

    Little minds mistake little objects for great ones, and lavish away upon the former that time and attention which only the latter deserve. To such mistakes we owe the numerous and frivolous tribe of insect-mongers, shell-mongers, and pursuers and driers of butterflies, etc. The strong mind distinguishes, not only between the useful and the useless, but likewise between the useful and the curious.
    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)
