    A drunkard would not give money to sober people. He said they would only eat it, and buy clothes and send their children to school with it.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    Anyone who has a child today should train him to be either a physicist or a ballet dancer. Then he’ll escape.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    Because a person is born the subject of a given state, you deny the sovereignty of the people? How about the child of Cuban slaves who is born a slave, is that an argument for slavery? The one is a fact as well as the other. Why then, if you use legal arguments in the one case, you don’t in the other?
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    The religion of England is part of good-breeding. When you see on the continent the well-dressed Englishman come into his ambassador’s chapel and put his face for silent prayer into his smooth-brushed hat, you cannot help feeling how much national pride prays with him, and the religion of a gentleman.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
