Famous quotes containing the words board and/or mat:

    Don’t tell me what delusion he entertains regarding God, or what mountebank he follows in politics, or what he springs from, or what he submits to from his wife. Simply tell me how he makes his living. It is the safest and surest of all known tests. A man who gets his board and lodging on this ball in an ignominious way is inevitably an ignominious man.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Or on the Mat devoutly kneeling
    Would lift her Eyes up to the Ceiling,
    And heave her Bosom unaware
    For neighb’ring Beaux to see it bare.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
