Revel quotes

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteSCRAP-BOOK, n. A book that is commonly edited by a fool. Many persons of some small distinction compile scrap-books containing whatever they happen to read about themselves or employ others to collect. One of these egotists was addressed in the lines following, by Agamemnon Melancthon Peters:



Dear Frank, that scrap-book where you boast You keep a record true Of every kind of peppered roast That's made of you;



Wherein you paste the printed gibes That revel round your name, Thinking the laughter of the scribes Attests your fame;



Where all the pictures you arrange That comic pencils trace -- Your funny figure and your strange Semitic face --



Pray lend it me. Wit I have not, Nor art, but there I'll list The daily drubbings you'd have got Had God a fist.

 Ambrose Bierce quotes (American Writer, Journalist and Editor, 1842-1914)

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteSMITHAREEN, n. A fragment, a decomponent part, a remain. The word is used variously, but in the following verse on a noted female reformer who opposed bicycle-riding by women because it "led them to the devil" it is seen at its best:



The wheels go round without a sound -- The maidens hold high revel; In sinful mood, insanely gay, True spinsters spin adown the way From duty to the devil! They laugh, they sing, and --ting-a-ling! Their bells go all the morning; Their lanterns bright bestar the night Pedestrians a-warning. With lifted hands Miss Charlotte stands, Good-Lording and O-mying, Her rheumatism forgotten quite, Her fat with anger frying. She blocks the path that leads to wrath, Jack Satan's power defying. The wheels go round without a sound The lights burn red and blue and green. What's this that's found upon the ground? Poor Charlotte Smith's a smithareen! --John William Yope
