    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteINTIMACY, n. A relation into which fools are providentially drawn for their mutual destruction.



Two Seidlitz powders, one in blue And one in white, together drew And having each a pleasant sense Of t'other powder's excellence, Forsook their jackets for the snug Enjoyment of a common mug. So close their intimacy grew One paper would have held the two. To confidences straight they fell, Less anxious each to hear than tell; Then each remorsefully confessed To all the virtues he possessed, Acknowledging he had them in So high degree it was a sin. The more they said, the more they felt Their spirits with emotion melt, Till tears of sentiment expressed Their feelings. Then they effervesced! So Nature executes her feats Of wrath on friends and sympathetes The good old rule who don't apply, That you are you and I am I.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteJESTER, n. An officer formerly attached to a king's household, whose business it was to amuse the court by ludicrous actions and utterances, the absurdity being attested by his motley costume. The king himself being attired with dignity, it took the world some centuries to discover that his own conduct and decrees were sufficiently ridiculous for the amusement not only of his court but of all mankind. The jester was commonly called a fool, but the poets and romancers have ever delighted to represent him as a singularly wise and witty person. In the circus of to-day the melancholy ghost of the court fool effects the dejection of humbler audiences with the same jests wherewith in life he gloomed the marble hall, panged the patrician sense of humor and tapped the tank of royal tears.



The widow-queen of Portugal Had an audacious jester Who entered the confessional Disguised, and there confessed her.



"Father," she said, "thine ear bend down -- My sins are more than scarlet: I love my fool --blaspheming clown, And common, base-born varlet."



"Daughter," the mimic priest replied,

"That sin, indeed, is awful: The church's pardon is denied To love that is unlawful.



"But since thy stubborn heart will be For him forever pleading, Thou'dst better make him, by decree, A man of birth and breeding."



She made the fool a duke, in hope With Heaven's taboo to palter; Then told a priest, who told the Pope, Who damned her from the altar! --Barel Dort
