Want a towel on a chair In the sand by the sea, Want to look through my shades, And see you there with me.
Let us reunite ourselves with our better mind and with the world through science; and let it be one of our angelic revenges on the Philistines, who among their other sins are the guilty authors of Fenianism, to found at Oxford a chair of Celtic, and to send, through the gentle ministration of science, a message of peace to Ireland.Matthew Arnold

His Majesty entered the House, and as he passed up towards the chair, he cast his eye on the right hand near Ruskin the Bar of the House where Mr Pym used to sit; but His Majesty, not seeing him there (knowing him well) went up to the chair and said,'By your leave, Mr Speaker, I must borrow your chair a little.'

The Jackdaw sat in the Cardinal's chair! Bishop and Abbot and Prior were there, Many a monk and many a friar, Many a knight and many a squire, With a great many more of lesser degree, In sooth a goodly company; And they served the Lord Primate on bended knee.

hurry up and bring on your electric chair I want to leave here and take a nose-dive into the next world just to see if that one is as lousy as is this ball of mud and meanness.
