seems no miracle; unwritten, it seems
something beyond the capacity of the gods.

Come close to me, dear Annie, while I bind a lover's knot.

Bagpipe Music

It's no go the merrygoround, it's no go the rickshaw,

Their knickers are made of crepe-de-chine, their shoes are made of python,
Their halls are lined with tiger rugs and their walls with head of bison.

Of Subjection. From Proverbial Philosophy

For there are reciprocities of right, which no creature can gainsay.
Unto each was there added by its Maker, in the perfect chain of being,
Dependencies and sustentations, accidents, and qualities, and powers:

The Schoolboy, The Pedant, And The Owner Of A Garden (prose Fable)

A youngster, who was doubly foolish and doubly a rogue - in which perhaps he savoured of the school he went to - was given, they say, to robbing a neighbour's garden of its fruit and flowers. This may have been because he was too young to know better, and perhaps because teachers do not always mould the minds of young people in the right way.

The owner of the garden boasted in each season the very best of what was due. In spring he could show the most delightful blossoms and in autumn the very pick of all the apples.
