Gay Affirmative

Famous quotes containing the words gay and/or affirmative:

    If love the virgin’s heart invade,
    How, like a moth, the simple maid
    Still plays about the flame!
    —John Gay (1685–1732)

    Whether or not the world would be vastly benefited by a total banishment from it of all intoxicating drinks seems not now an open question. Three-fourths of mankind confess the affirmative with their tongues, and I believe all the rest acknowledge it in their hearts.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
