Epigrams

Famous quotes containing the word epigrams:

    If anybody comes to I,
    I physics, bleeds, and sweats’em;
    If, after that, they like to die,
    Why, what care I, I lets ‘em.
    —Anonymous. “On Dr. Lettsom,” from Geoffrey Grigson’s Faber Book of Epigrams and Epitaphs (1977)

    Wha lies here?
    I, Johnny Doo.
    Hoo, Johnny, is that you?
    Ay, man, but a’m dead noo.

    Galway is a blackguard place,
    To Cork I give my curse,
    Tralee is bad enough,
    But Limerick is worse.
    Which is worst I cannot tell,
    They’re everyone so filthy,
    But of the towns which I have seen
    Worst luck to Clonakilty.
    —Anonymous. “Clonakilty,” from Geoffrey Grigson’s Faber Book of Epigrams and Epitaphs, Faber & Faber (1977)
