[ Also see Aristocracy Names Nobility Rank Royalty ]

Titles the servile courtier's lean reward.
      - Nicholas Rowe

I would not cross the street to make a Baptist, but I would go round the world to make a Christian.
      - James Sharp

Titles distinguish the mediocre, embarrass the superior, and are disgraced by the inferior.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Titles are valuable; they make us acquainted with many persons who otherwise would be lost among the rubbish.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

Titles of honor are like the impressions on coin; which add no value to gold and silver, but only render brass current.
      - Laurence Sterne

A lawyer is sometimes required to search titles, and the client who thinks he has good right to an estate, puts the papers in his hands, and the attorney goes into the public records and finds everything right for three or four years back; but after a time he comes to a break in the title. So he finds that the man who supposed he owned it owns not an acre of the ground which belongs to someone else. I trace the title of this world from century to century until I find the whole right vested in God. Now to whom did he give it? To his own children. All are yours.
      - Thomas De Witt Talmage

Titles are of no value to posterity; the name of a man who has achieved great deeds imposes more respect than any or all epithets.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

The fool or knave who wears a title lies.
      - Edward Young
