Famous quotes containing the word harte:

    Now, I hold it is not decent for a scientific gent
    To say another is an ass—at least, to all intent;
    Nor should the individual who happens to be meant
    Reply by heaving rocks at him to any great extent.
    —Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    I reside at Table Mountain, and my name is Truthful James;
    I am not up to small deceit, or any sinful games;
    And I’ll tell in simple language what I know about the row
    That broke up our society upon the Stanislow.
    But first I would remark, that it is not a proper plan
    For any scientific man to whale his fellow-man,
    —Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    In his sleeves, which were long,
    He had twenty-four packs,—
    Which was coming it strong,
    Yet I state but the facts;
    And we found on his nails, which were taper,
    What is frequent in tapers,—that’s wax.
    —Bret Harte (1836–1902)
