a&h quotes- 10 of
There's a sucker born every minute.
As a beauty I'm not a great star.
Others are handsomer far;
I am not a literary man.... I am a man of science, and I am interested in that branch of Anthropology which deals with the history
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
A hunger seized my heart; I read
Of that glad year which once had been,
Betwixt the black fronts long-withdrawn
A light-blue lane of early dawn,
And Time, a maniac scattering dust,
And Life, a Fury slinging flame.
Calm is the morn without a sound,
Calm as to suit a calmer grief,
So runs my dream: but what am I?
An infant crying in the night;
And but for fancies, which aver
That all thy motions gently pass
