Tut, tut, child! said the Duchess. Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it.
— Lewis Carroll

It was said of old Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, that she never puts dots over her I s, to save ink.
Horace Walpole duchesses quote

The earth is the earth as a peasant sees it, the world is the world as a duchess sees it, and anyway a duchess would be nothing if the earth was not there as the peasant sees it.
— Gertrude Stein

Were it not for imagination a man would be as happy in arms of a chambermaid as of a duchess.
— Samuel Johnson

If everybody minded their own business, the Duchess said in a hoarse growl, the world would go round a deal faster than it does.
— duchesses quotation by Lewis Carroll
