Famous quotes containing the words ball and/or keith:
“Dont tell me what delusion he entertains regarding God, or what mountebank he follows in politics, or what he springs from, or what he submits to from his wife. Simply tell me how he makes his living. It is the safest and surest of all known tests. A man who gets his board and lodging on this ball in an ignominious way is inevitably an ignominious man.”
—H.L. (Henry Lewis)
“The Christ-child lay on Marys lap,
His hair was like a light.
(O weary, weary were the world,
But here is all aright.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
