Gay Press

Famous quotes containing the words gay and/or press:

    And I would love you all the Day,
    Every Night would kiss and play,
    If with me you’d fondly stray
    Over the Hills and far away.
    —John Gay (1685–1732)

    In those rare days, the press was seldom known to snarl or bark,
    But sweetly sang of men in pow’r, like any tuneful lark;
    Grave judges, too, to all their evil deeds were in the dark;
    And not a man in twenty score knew how to make his mark.
    Oh the fine old English Tory times;
    Charles Dickens (1812–1890)
