To hold the same views at forty as we held at twenty is to have been stupefied for a score of years, and take rank, not as a prophet, but as an unteachable brat, well birched and none the wiser. It is as if a ship captain should sail to India from the Port of London; and having brought a chart of the Thames on deck at his first setting out, should obstinately use no other for the whole voyage.
Serves you right, you horrid brat For what you did to that poor cat.Ludwig Bemelmans
Who to patch up his fame, or fill his purse,Still pilfers wretched plans, and makes them worse;Like gypsies, lest the stolen brat be known,Defacing first, then claiming for his own.Charles Churchill
Yet still to choose a brat like you, To haunt a man of forty-two, Was no great compliment!"Lewis Carroll
... ka?dy, gdzie siedzia?, tam pada: Ten z mis?, ten nad kuflem, ten przy wo?u ?wierci. Tak zwyci??ców zwyci??y? w ko?cu sen, brat ?mierci.
