Birthdays occurring on April, 26
||Robert Herrick was born on April 26, 1868|
Bid me to live, and I will live
Thy Protestant to be;
Or bid me love, and I will give
A loving heart to thee.
A heart as soft, a heart as kind,
A heart as sound and free
As in the whole world thou canst find,
That heart I'll give to thee.
Bid that heart stay, and it will stay
To honour thy decree;
Or bid it languish quite away,
And't shall do so for thee.
Bid me to weep, and I will weep,
While I have eyes to see;
And having none, yet I will keep
A heart to weep for thee.
Bid me despair, and I'll despair,
Under that cypress tree;
Or bid me die, and I will dare
E'en death, to die for thee.
--Thou art my life, my love, my heart,
The very eyes of me;
And hast command of every part,
To live and die for thee.More quotations from Robert Herrick
||Ludwig Wittgenstein was born on April 26, 1889|
For an answer which cannot be expressed the question too cannot
be expressed. The riddle does not exist. If a question can be
put at all, then it can also be answered.More quotations from Ludwig Wittgenstein
||Anita Loos was born on April 26, 1893|
American Hollywood screenwriter and novelist celebrated for her novel Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which became the basis of a popular play, two musicals and two films. 1893-1981
Today there are no fairy tales for us to believe in, and this is possibly a reason for the universal prevalence of mental crack-up. Yes, if we were childish in the past, I wish we could be children once again.More quotations from Anita Loos

||John Wilkes Booth died on April 26, 1865|
This country was formed for the white not for the black man. And looking upon African slavery from the same stand-point, as held by those noble framers of our Constitution, I for one, have ever considered it, one of the greatest blessings that God ever bestowed upon a favored nation.More quotations from John Wilkes Booth
