~Charles Lamb

Lawyers, I suppose, were children once.

Boys are capital fellows in their own way, among their mates but they are unwholesome companions for grown people.

I mean your borrowers of books - those mutilators of collections, spoilers of the symmetry of shelves, and creators of odd volumes.

Lawers, I suppose, were children once.

My motto is: Contented with little, yet wishing for more.

Nothing to me is more distasteful than that entire complacency and satisfaction which beam in the countenances of a newly married couple.

Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and have her nonsense respected.

Hilaire Belloc Poem
The Catholic Sun
 by Hilaire Belloc

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There-s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I-ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!
