    It was one of the deadliest and heaviest feelings of my life to feel that I was no longer a boy. From that moment I began to grow old in my own esteem—and in my esteem age is not estimable.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Last night, party at Lansdowne-House. Tonight, party at Lady Charlotte Greville’s—deplorable waste of time, and something of temper. Nothing imparted—nothing acquired—talking without ideas—if any thing like thought in my mind, it was not on the subjects on which we were gabbling. Heigho!—and in this way half London pass what is called life.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    And Coleridge, too, has lately taken wing,
    But like a hawk encumber’d with his hood,—
    Explaining Metaphysics to the nation—
    I wish he would explain his Explanation.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Are we aware of our obligations to a mob? It is the mob that labour in your fields and serve in your houses—that man your navy, and recruit your army—that have enabled you to defy the world, and can also defy you when neglect and calamity have driven them to despair. You may call the people a mob; but do not forget that a mob too often speaks the sentiments of the people.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Dreading that climax of all human ills
    The inflammation of his weekly bills.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Time writes no wrinkles on thine azure brow;
    Such as creation’s dawn beheld, thou rollest now.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Capital is a result of labor, and is used by labor to assist it in further production. Labor is the active and initial force, and labor is therefore the employer of capital.
    —Henry George (1839–1897)

    Nothing dates one so dreadfully as to think someplace is uptown.... At our age one must be watchful of these conversational gray hairs.
    —Ruth Gordon (1896–1985)
