“All ye poets of the age,

All ye witlings of the stage,

Learn your jingles to reform,

Crop your *numbers* to conform.

Let your little verses flow

Gently, sweetly, row by row;

Let the verse the subject fit,

Little subject, little wit.

Namby-Pamby is your guide,

Albion’s joy, Hibernia’s pride.”

—Henry Carey (1693?–1743)

“The striking *point* about our model family is not simply the compete-compete, consume-consume style of life it urges us to follow.... The striking *point*, in the face of all the propaganda, is how few Americans actually live this way.”

—Louise Kapp Howe (b. 1934)
