So Columbus said, somebody show me the sunset and somebody did and he set sail for it, And he discovered America and they put him in jail for it, And the fetters gave him welts, And they named America after somebody else.
I built myself a house of glass:It took me years to make it:And I was proud. But now, alas!Would God someone would break it.edward thomas
Mine is one of the jobs that, if you want it, you will never get itand if you're seen to want it you will certainly never get it.
People who have what they want are very fond of telling people who haven't what they want that they really don't want it,And I wish I could afford to gather all such people into a gloomy castle on the Danube and hire half a dozen capable Draculas to haunt it.I dont' mind their having a lot of money, and I don't care how they employ it,But I do think that they damn well ought to admit they enjoy it.ogden nash

Nice work if you can get it,And you can get it if you try.ira gershwin
