Famous quotes containing the words council, limerick and/or city:
“Daughter to that good Earl, once President
Of Englands Council and her Treasury,
Who lived in both, unstaind with gold or fee,
And left them both, more in himself content.
Till the sad breaking of that Parliament
Broke him, as that dishonest victory
At Chaeronea, fatal to liberty,
Killd with report that old man eloquent;”
—John Milton (16081674)
“The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical,
But the good ones Ive seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.”
“The great city is that which has the greatest man or woman:
If it be a few ragged huts, it is still the greatest city in the whole
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
