    One thing I am determined on is that by the time I die my brain shall weigh as much as a man’s if study and learning can make it so.
    —M. Carey Thomas (1857–1935)

    There is not any book
    Or face of dearest look
    That I would not turn from now
    To go into the unknown
    I must enter, and leave, alone,
    I know not how.
    —Edward Thomas (1878–1917)

    All ye poets of the age,
    All ye witlings of the stage,
    Learn your jingles to reform,
    Crop your numbers to conform.
    Let your little verses flow
    Gently, sweetly, row by row;
    Let the verse the subject fit,
    Little subject, little wit.
    Namby-Pamby is your guide,
    Albion’s joy, Hibernia’s pride.
    —Henry Carey (1693?–1743)
