John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7240
AUTHOR:John James Robert, Duke of Rutland Manners (1818–1906)
QUOTATION:No: by the names inscribed in History’s page,
Names that are England’s noblest heritage,
Names that shall live for yet unnumbered years
Shrined in our hearts with Cressy and Poictiers;
Let wealth and commerce, laws and learning die,
But leave us still our old nobility.
ATTRIBUTION:England’s Trust. Part iii. Line 227.
