Famous quotes containing the words gilbert, sir and/or humphrey:

    Oh! a private buffoon is a light-hearted loon,
    If you listen to popular rumour;
    From morning to night he’s so joyous and bright,
    And he bubbles with wit and good humour!
    —Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    There are a sort of men whose visages
    Do cream and mantle like a standing pond,
    And do a willful stillness entertain,
    With purpose to be dressed in an opinion
    Of wisdom, gravity, profound conceit,
    As who should say, “I am Sir Oracle,
    And when I ope my lips let no dog bark!”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Each child is an adventure into a better life—an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
    —Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
