    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Galileo, with an operaglass, discovered a more splendid series of celestial phenomena than anyone since.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A nap, my friend, is a brief period of sleep which overtakes superannuated persons when they endeavour to entertain unwelcome visitors or to listen to scientific lectures.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
