Trousered Apes

Erasmus, Praise of Folly:
An ape is always an ape, even if it's dressed in purple. (simia semper est simia, etiam si purpura vestiatur.)
The phrase 'trousered apes' comes from from C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man (1947), and was borrowed by Duncan Williams for the title of a book published in 1971.
