  • 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.
    • England's Trust, part iii, line 227, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
