Now Albert had heard about lions,How they was ferocious and wild;And to see Wallace lying so peaceful,Just didn't seem right to the child.So straightway the brave little feller,Not showing a morsel of fear,Took his stick with the 'orses 'ead 'andle,And shoved it in Wallace's ear.
So with 'is 'ead down in a corner,On 'is front paws 'e started to walk,And 'e coughed and 'e sneezed and 'e gargled,Till Albert shot out like a cork.Old Wallace felt better direc'ly,And 'is figure once more became lean,But the only difference with AlbertWas 'is face and 'is 'ands were quite clean.marriott edgar
Scottish literature begins effectively with Archdeacon Barbour's Bruce some sixty years after Bannockburn , and to the Bruce and Blind Harry's Wallace (so staunch is the Scot, and such an antiquary in grain) must be attributed much of the colouring and subsequent tone of Scottish sentiment. The Bruce is the better poem, simple, truthful, noble, stirring, a proper start for the literature of a fighting people.john barbour
Wallace 's error on human intellect arose from the inadequacy of his rigid selectionism, not from a failure to apply it. And his argument repays our study today, since its flaw persists as the weak link in many of the most “modern” evolutionary speculations of our current literature. For Wallace's rigid selectionism is much closer than Darwin's pluralism to the attitude embodied in our favored theory today, which, ironically in this context, goes by the name of “Neo-Darwinism.”stephen jay gould
I turn now not to the Bible but to Wallace Stevensr. s. thomas
The arrival of Wallace Hartley’s body became a focal point of national grief. This young man not only represented all who had died on the Titanic, but also the values that the British feared were in decline.steve turner
Wallace Hartley: “I’ve always felt that, when men are called to face death suddenly, music is are more effective in cheering them on than all the firearms in creation.”steve turner
In the light of the new knowledge various plausible, but frequently unsatisfying, suggestions put forward, especially by Wallace , Weismann , and their followers, as probable accounts of evolutionary progress, must be finally abandoned.
But much of what Mr. Wallace calls his global thinking is, no matter how you slice it, still "globaloney." Mr. Wallace's warp of sense and his woof of nonsense is very tricky cloth out of which to cut the pattern of a post-war world.
Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled; Scots, wham Bruce has aften led. Welcome to your gory bed, or to victory!Robert Burns
Wallace: Hi. Big fan. Why wouldn't you be?
The durian neither Wallace or Darwin agreed on it. Darwin said "may your worst enemies be forced to feed on it." Wallace cried "it's delicious." Darwin replied "I'm suspicious", For the flavour is scented Like papaya fermented After a fruit-eating bat has pee'd on it.
