    The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    Me wretched! Let me curr to quercine shades!
    Effund your albid hausts, lactiferous maids!
    O, might I vole to some umbrageous clump,—
    Depart,—be off,—excede,—evade,—erump!
    —Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    “No, no; the real name,” said Holmes sweetly. “It is always awkward doing business with an alias.”
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    Unpretending mediocrity is good, and genius is glorious; but a weak flavor of genius in an essentially common person is detestable. It spoils the grand neutrality of a commonplace character, as the rinsings of an unwashed wine-glass spoil a draught of fair water.
    —Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)
