Famous quotes containing the words sir john, robinson and/or john:

    People’s backyards are much more interesting than their front gardens, and houses that back on to railways are public benefactors.
    Sir John Betjeman (1906–1984)

    Passion is here a soilure of the wits,
    We’re told, and Love a cross for them to bear;
    Joy shivers in the corner where she knits
    And Conscience always has the rocking-chair,
    Cheerful as when she tortured into fits
    The first cat that was ever killed by Care.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    “Our earth is degenerate in these latter days. Bribery and corruption are common. Children no longer obey their parents. . . . The end of the world is evidently approaching.” Sound familiar? It is, in fact, the lament of a scribe in one of the earliest inscriptions to be unearthed in Mesopotamia, where Western civilization was born.
    —C. John Sommerville (20th century)
