Ungracious quotes

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteDeath eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all’s fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he’s no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he’s neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach’d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and tho’ you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men’s lives, which he guggles down like mother’s milk.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteEDITOR, n. A person who combines the judicial functions of Minos, Rhadamanthus and Aeacus, but is placable with an obolus; a severely virtuous censor, but so charitable withal that he tolerates the virtues of others and the vices of himself; who flings about him the splintering lightning and sturdy thunders of admonition till he resembles a bunch of firecrackers petulantly uttering his mind at the tail of a dog; then straightway murmurs a mild, melodious lay, soft as the cooing of a donkey intoning its prayer to the evening star. Master of mysteries and lord of law, high-pinnacled upon the throne of thought, his face suffused with the dim splendors of the Transfiguration, his legs intertwisted and his tongue a-cheek, the editor spills his will along the paper and cuts it off in lengths to suit. And at intervals from behind the veil of the temple is heard the voice of the foreman demanding three inches of wit and six lines of religious meditation, or bidding him turn off the wisdom and whack up some pathos.



O, the Lord of Law on the Throne of Thought, A gilded impostor is he. Of shreds and patches his robes are wrought, His crown is brass, Himself an ass, And his power is fiddle-dee-dee. Prankily, crankily prating of naught, Silly old quilly old Monarch of Thought. Public opinion's camp-follower he, Thundering, blundering, plundering free. Affected, Ungracious, Suspected, Mendacious, Respected contemporaree! --J.H. Bumbleshook

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteSAFETY-CLUTCH, n. A mechanical device acting automatically to prevent the fall of an elevator, or cage, in case of an accident to the hoisting apparatus.



Once I seen a human ruin In an elevator-well, And his members was bestrewin' All the place where he had fell.



And I says, apostrophisin' That uncommon woful wreck:

"Your position's so surprisin' That I tremble for your neck!"



Then that ruin, smilin' sadly And impressive, up and spoke:

"Well, I wouldn't tremble badly, For it's been a fortnight broke."



Then, for further comprehension Of his attitude, he begs I will focus my attention On his various arms and legs --



How they all are contumacious; Where they each, respective, lie; How one trotter proves ungracious, T'other one an _alibi_.



These particulars is mentioned For to show his dismal state, Which I wasn't first intentioned To specifical relate.



None is worser to be dreaded That I ever have heard tell Than the gent's who there was spreaded In that elevator-well.



Now this tale is allegoric -- It is figurative all, For the well is metaphoric And the feller didn't fall.



I opine it isn't moral For a writer-man to cheat, And despise to wear a laurel As was gotten by deceit.



For 'tis Politics intended By the elevator, mind, It will boost a person splendid If his talent is the kind.



Col. Bryan had the talent

(For the busted man is him) And it shot him up right gallant Till his head begun to swim.



Then the rope it broke above him And he painful come to earth Where there's nobody to love him For his detrimented worth.



Though he's livin' none would know him, Or at leastwise not as such. Moral of this woful poem: Frequent oil your safety-clutch. --Porfer Poog
