Tonight I Quote From The Birth Section

I found a couple I thought were interesting tonight, so here goes…

“What is birth to man if it be a stain to his dead ancestors to have left such an offspring?” – Sir P. Sidney

“Of all vanities and fopperies, the vanity of high birth is the greatest. True nobility is derived from virtue, not from birth.  Titles indeed, may be purchased; but virtue is the only coin that makes the bargain valid.” – Burton

  1. Great quotes Liz, as always! I find virtue to be a fast-fading quality in the general population anymore…that’s incredibly sad.
