Famous quotes containing the word walpole:

    A man of sense, though born without wit, often lives to have wit. His memory treasures up ideas and reflections; he compares them with new occurrences, and strikes out new lights from the collision. The consequence is sometimes bons mots, and sometimes apothegms.
    —Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    Our [British] summers are often, though beautiful for verdure, so cold, that they are rather cold winters.
    —Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    Of Ickworth’s boys, their father’s joys,
    There is but one a bad one;
    The tenth is he, the parson’s fee,
    And indeed he is a sad one.
    No love of fame, no sense of shame,
    And a bad heart, let me tell ye:
    Without, all brass; within, all ass,
    And the puppy’s name is Felly.
    —Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
