A Little Treasury of Modern Poetry is a standard Oscar Williams production... ...the book has the merit of containing a considerably larger selection of Oscar Williams’s poems than I have seen in any other anthology. There are nine of his poems and five of Hardy ’s. It takes a lot of courage to like your own poetry almost twice as well as Hardy’s.
Error is a Hardy plant; it flourisheth in every soil;In the heart of the wise and good, alike with the wicked and foolish;For there is no error so crooked, but it hath in it some lines of truth;Nor is any poison so deadly, that it serveth not some wholesome use.martin farquhar tupper
My fate cries out, And makes each petty artery in this body As Hardy as the Numean lion's nerve.william shakespeare
O Scotia! my dear, my native soil! For whom my warmest wish to heaven is sent; Long may thy Hardy sons of rustic toil Be blest with health, and peace, and sweet content.Robert Burns
Kiss me, Hardy.

Hardy in his thirties held the view that the late years of a mathematician's life were spent most profitably in writing books; I remember a particular conversation about this, and though we never spoke of the matter again it remained an understanding.g. h. hardy
To illustrate to what extent Hardy and Littlewood in the course of the years came to be considered as the leaders of recent English mathematical research, I may report what an excellent colleague once jokingly said: 'Nowadays, there are only three really great English mathematicians: Hardy, Littlewood, and Hardy-Littlewood.'g. h. hardy
I read in the proof-sheets of Hardy on Ramanujan: 'As someone said, each of the positive integers was one of his personal friends.' My reaction was, 'I wonder who said that; I wish I had.' In the next proof-sheets I read (what now stands): 'It was Littlewood who said...' (What had happened was that Hardy had received the remark in silence and with a poker face, and I wrote it off as a dud....)john edensor littlewood
That's part of our policy , is not to be taken seriously, because I think our opposition, whoever they may be, in all their manifest forms, don't know how to handle humor. You know, and we are humorous, we are, what are they, Laurel and Hardy. That's John and Yoko, and we stand a better chance under that guise, because all the serious people, like Martin Luther King, and Kennedy , and Gandhi , got shot.
Patient, dramatic, serious, genial,From over to over the game goes on,Weaving a pattern of Hardy perennial,Civilisation under the sun.
Young men, you who have any piety at all, what sort is it? Is it a hot-house plant, which must be framed and glassed, lest March, that bold young fellow, should shake the life out.of it in his rough play among the flowers? or is it a Hardy shrub, which rejoices when the wild winds course along the heather or howl above the crest of Lebanon ' We need, believe me, the bravery of godliness to bear true witness for our Master now.william morley punshon
There is nothing at all that remains: nor any house; nor any castle, however strong; nor any love, however tender and sound; nor any comradeship among men, however Hardy. Nothing remains but the things of which I will not speak, because we have spoken enough of them already during these four days. But I who am old will give you advice, which is this to consider chiefly from now onwards those permanent things which are, as it were, the shores of this age and the harbours of our glittering and pleasant but dangerous and wholly changeful sea.hilaire belloc
I first drew in New England's air, and from her Hardy breast Sucked in the tyrant-hating milk that will not let me rest.james russell lowell
Brambles, in particular, protect and nourish young fruit trees, and on farms bramble clumps (blackberry or one of its related cultivars) can be used to exclude deer and cattle from newly set trees. As the trees (apple, quince, plum, citrus, fig) age, and the brambles are shaded out, hoofed animals come to eat fallen fruit, and the mature trees (7 plus years old) are sufficiently Hardy to withstand browsing. Our forest ancestors may well have followed some such sequences for orchard evolution, assisted by indigenous birds and mammals.bill mollison
Accustom him to everything, that he may not be a Sir Paris, a carpet-knight, 5 but a sinewy, Hardy, and vigorous young man.Michel de Montaigne
The Cossack prince rubb'd down his horse, And made for him a leafy bed, And smooth'd his fetlocks and his mane, And slack'd his girth, and stripp'd his rein, And joy'd to see how well he fed; For until now he had the dread His wearied courser might refuse To browse beneath the midnight dews: But he was Hardy as his lord, And little cared for bed and board; But spirited and docile too, Whate'er was to be done, would do.lord byron

He became at last the most Hardy of living Men, skilled in their crafts and lore, and was yet more than they; for he was elven-wise, and there was a light in his eyes that when they were kindled few could endure. His face was sad and stern because of the doom that was laid on him, and yet hope dwelt ever in the depths of his heart, from which mirth would arise at times like a spring from the rock.
