    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteFAIRY, n. A creature, variously fashioned and endowed, that formerly inhabited the meadows and forests. It was nocturnal in its habits, and somewhat addicted to dancing and the theft of children. The fairies are now believed by naturalist to be extinct, though a clergyman of the Church of England saw three near Colchester as lately as 1855, while passing through a park after dining with the lord of the manor. The sight greatly staggered him, and he was so affected that his account of it was incoherent. In the year 1807 a troop of fairies visited a wood near Aix and carried off the daughter of a peasant, who had been seen to enter it with a bundle of clothing. The son of a wealthy _bourgeois_ disappeared about the same time, but afterward returned. He had seen the abduction been in pursuit of the fairies. Justinian Gaux, a writer of the fourteenth century, avers that so great is the fairies' power of transformation that he saw one change itself into two opposing armies and fight a battle with great slaughter, and that the next day, after it had resumed its original shape and gone away, there were seven hundred bodies of the slain which the villagers had to bury. He does not say if any of the wounded recovered. In the time of Henry III, of England, a law was made which prescribed the death penalty for "Kyllynge, wowndynge, or mamynge" a fairy, and it was universally respected.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteTORTOISE, n. A creature thoughtfully created to supply occasion for the following lines by the illustrious Ambat Delaso:



TO MY PET TORTOISE



My friend, you are not graceful --not at all; Your gait's between a stagger and a sprawl.



Nor are you beautiful: your head's a snake's To look at, and I do not doubt it aches.



As to your feet, they'd make an angel weep.

'Tis true you take them in whene'er you sleep.



No, you're not pretty, but you have, I own, A certain firmness --mostly you're [sic] backbone.



Firmness and strength (you have a giant's thews) Are virtues that the great know how to use --



I wish that they did not; yet, on the whole, You lack --excuse my mentioning it --Soul.



So, to be candid, unreserved and true, I'd rather you were I than I were you.



Perhaps, however, in a time to be, When Man's extinct, a better world may see



Your progeny in power and control, Due to the genesis and growth of Soul.



So I salute you as a reptile grand Predestined to regenerate the land.



Father of Possibilities, O deign To accept the homage of a dying reign!



In the far region of the unforeknown I dream a tortoise upon every throne.



I see an Emperor his head withdraw Into his carapace for fear of Law;



A King who carries something else than fat, Howe'er acceptably he carries that;



A President not strenuously bent On punishment of audible dissent --



Who never shot (it were a vain attack) An armed or unarmed tortoise in the back;



Subject and citizens that feel no need To make the March of Mind a wild stampede;



All progress slow, contemplative, sedate, And "Take your time" the word, in Church and State.



O Tortoise, 'tis a happy, happy dream, My glorious testudinous regime!



I wish in Eden you'd brought this about By slouching in and chasing Adam out.
