    Here lies interred in the eternity of the past, from whence there is no resurrection for the days—whatever there may be for the dust—the thirty-third year of an ill-spent life, which, after a lingering disease of many months sank into a lethargy, and expired, January 22d, 1821, A.D. leaving a successor inconsolable for the very loss which occasioned its existence.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Work—work—work,
    In the dull December light,
    And work—work—work,
    When the weather is warm and bright—
    While underneath the eaves
    The brooding swallows cling
    As if to show me their sunny backs
    And twit me with the spring.
    Thomas Hood (1799–1845)

    This making of Christians will raise the price of hogs. If we grow all to be pork-eaters, we shall not shortly have a rasher on the coals for money.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
