Throng quotes

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteFor the perfect idler, for the passionate observer it becomes an immense source of enjoyment to establish his dwelling in the throng, in the ebb and flow, the bustle, the fleeting and the infinite.

The observer is a prince enjoying his incognito wherever he goes.

 Charles Baudelaire quotes (French Poet of Decadent & Parnassian movements. Wrote poetry collection "Les Fleurs du Mal" (1857), 1821-1867)

Some miscreants there are, whom I do long To shoot, to stab, or some such way reclaim The scurvy rogues to better lives and manners, I seem to see them now --a mighty throng. It looks as if to challenge _me_ they came, Jauntily marching with brass bands and banners! --Xamba Q. Dar
