Famous quotes containing the words dogs, madison and/or mad:
They fought the dogs and killed the cats,
And bit the babies in the cradles,
And ate the cheeses out of the vats,
And licked the soup from the cooks own ladles,
Split open the kegs of salted sprats,
Made nests inside mens Sunday hats,
And even spoiled the womens chats
By drowning their speaking
With shrieking and squeaking
In fifty different sharps and flats.”
—Robert Browning (18121889)
“[Exchange] the galling burden of bachelorship for the easy yoke of matrimony.”
—James Madison (17511836)
“Lit shelved liners
Grope like mad worlds westward.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
