    A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine & becoming viands.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Sometimes I lifted a chicken that warn’t roosting comfortable, and took him along. Pap always said, take a chicken when you get a chance, because if you don’t want him yourself you can easy find somebody that does, and a good deed ain’t ever forgot. I never see papa when he didn’t want the chicken himself, but that is what he used to say, anyway.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
