Famous quotes containing the word hackney:

    As to “Don Juan,” confess ... that it is the sublime of that there sort of writing; it may be bawdy, but is it not good English? It may be profligate, but is it not life, is it not the thing? Could any man have written it who has not lived in the world? and tooled in a post-chaise? in a hackney coach? in a Gondola? against a wall? in a court carriage? in a vis a vis? on a table? and under it?
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Now hardly here and there an hackney coach
    Appearing, showed the ruddy morn’s approach.
    Now Betty from her master’s bed had flown,
    And softly stole to discompose her own;
    The slipshod ‘prentice from his master’s door
    Had pared the dirt, and sprinkled round the floor.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
