Prince Charles: tradition and culture precede democracy
This is from Prince Charles’s toast at the White House dinner. I doubt he or the writer were conscious of this, but the order, in which tradition, history, language and culture precede democracy, could have been written by you!

From the Prince of Wales’s website:
It is an indication, if I may say so, Mr. President, of how very important and special our close, warm and enduring relationship with the United States of America is to all of us in the United Kingdom. Our two nations have much in common. We share so much history and tradition, language and culture, and a commitment to democracy and liberty. These enrich the spirit and are founded on those greatest of all gifts—friendship and loyalty.
