    It is not that the Englishman can’t feel—it is that he is afraid to feel. He has been taught at his public school that feeling is bad form. He must not express great joy or sorrow, or even open his mouth too wide when he talks—his pipe might fall out if he did.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    It would be unjust, and moreover Utopian, for Shakespeare to direct the shoemakers’ union. But it would be equally disastrous for the shoemakers’ union to ignore Shakespeare.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    John Anderson my jo, John,
    We clamb the hill the gither;
    And mony a canty day, John,
    We’ve had wi’ ane anither:
    Now we maun totter down, John,
    And hand in hand we’ll go;
    And sleep the gither at the foot,
    John Anderson my Jo.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
