Royalty Quotes

No God and no religion can survive ridicule. No political church, no nobility, no royalty or other fraud, can face ridicule in a fair field, and live.

Mark Twain

We treat our people like royalty. If you honor and serve the people who work for you, they will honor and serve you.

Mary Kay Ash

When religion and royalty are destroyed the people will attack the nobles; after the nobles, the rich.

Honor de Balzac

Royalty is a government in which the attention of the nation is concentrated on one person doing interesting actions.

Walter Bagehot

The Irish believe that fairies are extremely fond of good wine. The proof of the assertion is that in the olden days royalty would leave a keg of wine out for them at night. Sure enough, it was always gone in the morning.

Irish Folklore

Everyone likes flattery, and when you come to Royalty, you should lay it on with a thick trowel.

Benjamin Disraeli

Everyone likes flattery; and when you come to Royalty you should lay it on with a trowel.

Benjamin Disraeli

It was manifest that all persons who had learned that political science is an affair of conscience rather than of might or expediency, must regard their adversaries as men without principle, that the controversy between them would perpetually involve morality, and could not be governed by the plea of good intentions which softens down the asperities of religious strife. Nearly all the greatest men of the seventeenth century repudiated the innovation. In the eighteenth, the two ideas of Grotius, that there are certain political truths by which every state and every interest must stand or fall, and that society is knit together by a series of real and hypothetical contracts, became, in other hands, the lever that displaced the world. When, by what seemed the operation of an irresistible and constant law, royalty had prevailed over all enemies and all competitors, it became a religion. Its ancient rivals, the baron and the prelate, figured as supporters by its side.

John Dalberg-Acton, Lord Acton
