has long been recognized that there are those among us who are much deserving
of high honor but who, by reason of the nature and direction of their
services and achievement, come not to the glory of warrior or Throne,
yet without whom our Kingdom would not be half so blest. For a Kingdom
is supported by three things: chivalry, art, and service. And without
any one of these, the Kingdom topples.
Therefore was created the Order of the Laurel to recognize those who, possessing all the other skills, virtues, and attributes appropriate to members of the Peerage, shall also have distinguished themselves by outstanding achievement in the Arts and Sciences.
