Quotations

  • 1593, William Shakespeare, King Henry VI, Part 2: Act II, Scene II:
    This Edmund, in the reign of Bolingbroke,
    As I have read, laid claim unto the crown;
    And but for Owen Glendower, had been king,
    Who kept him in captivity till he died.
  • 1833 Jane Austen: Mansfield Park: Chapter 7:
    "To me, the sound of Mr. Bertram is so cold and nothing-meaning, so entirely without warmth or character! It just stands for a gentleman, and that's all. But there is nobleness in the name of Edmund. It is a name of heroism and renown; of kings, princes, and knights; and seems to breathe the spirit of chivalry and warm affections."
