Common Ancestor

Famous quotes containing the words common and/or ancestor:

    For all Men would be Cowards if they durst:
    And Honesty’s against all common sense—

    I cannot yet begin to understand
    Why we are proud that an ancestor knew
    The crazy Poe, who was not of our kind
    Bats in the belfry that round and round flew
    In vapors not quite wholesome for the mind.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
