“Ask a wise man to dinner and hell upset everyone by his gloomy silence or tiresome questions. Invite him to a dance and youll have a camel prancing about. Haul him off to a public entertainment and his face will be enough to spoil the peoples entertainment.”
—Desiderius Erasmus (c. 14661536)
“I heard the bells, on Christmas Day,
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (18091882)
