NOBILITY QUOTES

quotations about nobility

Nobility is a river that sets with a constant and undeviating current, directly into the great Pacific Ocean of Time; but, unlike all other rivers, it is more grand at its source, than at its termination.

CHARLES CALEB COLTON, Lacon

Nobility of birth commonly abateth industry.

FRANCIS BACON, Essays

It matters not from what stock we are descended so long as we have virtue; for that alone is true Nobility.

WELLINS CALCOTT, Thoughts Moral and Divine

Nobility is often no more than the inner aspect which our egotistical feelings assume when we have not yet named and classified them.

MARCEL PROUST, Within a Budding Grove

Be noble! and the nobleness that lies
In other men, sleeping but never dead,
Will rise in majesty to meet thine own.

JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL, Sonnet IV

Nobility of birth does not always insure a corresponding nobility of mind; if it did, it would always act as a stimulus to noble actions; but it sometimes acts as a clog, rather than a spur.

CHARLES CALEB COLTON, Lacon

I will bow myself before him who is influenced by a noble conviction, and who only desires that which is conducive to good, be he prince or man of the people.

HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN, The Story of My Life

The nobly born must nobly meet his fate.

EURIPIDES, Alcmene, (fragment)
