    The place is very well & quiet & the children only scream in a low voice.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Dudley Nichols (1895–1960)

    The most welcome joke to me is the one that takes the place of a heavy, not altogether innocuous thought, at once a cautionary hint of the finger and a flash of the eye.
