Where some think, and others do not, there is developed aristocracy. Where all have come to think we have democracy,--the government of the people by themselves.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Turbulent, discontented men of quality, in proportion as they are puffed up with personal pride and arrogance, generally despise their own order.
      - Edmund Burke

Aristocracy has three successive ages,--the age of superiorities, the age of privileges, and the age of vanities; having passed out of the first, it degenerates in the second, and dies away in the third.
      - Francois August Rene de Chateaubriand, Vicomte de Chateaubriand

And lords whose parents were the Lord knows who!
      - Daniel Defoe

I do not understand how an aristocracy can exist, unless it be distinguished by some quality which no other class of the community possesses.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

The aristocrat is the democrat ripe and gone to seed.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Amongst the masses--even in revolutions--aristocracy must ever exist; destroy it in nobility, and it becomes centred in the rich and powerful Houses of the Commons. Pull them down, and it still survives in the master and foreman of the workshop.
      - Francois Pierre G. Guizot

An aristocracy is the true support of a monarchy.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

You may depend upon it that they are as good hearts to serve men in palaces as in cottages.
      - Robert Owen

Aristocracy is always cruel.
      - Wendell Phillips

By blood a king, in heart a clown.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson
