C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Heraldry
 
  A court of heraldry sprung up to supply the place of crusade exploits, to grant imaginary shields and trophies to families that never wore real armor, and it is but of late that it has been discovered to have no real jurisdiction.
Shenstone.

  We may talk what we please of lilies, and lions rampant, and spread eagles, in fields of d’or or d’argent, but if heraldry were guided by reason, a plough in a field arable would be the most noble and ancient arms.
Cowley.
