Jolly

Famous quotes containing the word jolly:

    I wish I loved the Human Race;
    I wish I loved its silly face;
    I wish I liked the way it walks;
    I wish I liked the way it talks;
    And when I’m introduced to one
    I wish I thought What Jolly Fun!
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1861–1922)

    A black pall, you know, with a silver cross on it, or R.I.P.—requiescat in pace—you know. That seems to me the most beautiful expression—I like it much better than ‘He is a jolly good fellow,’ which is simply rowdy.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)

    Adam had learned the jolly deed of kind:
    He took her in his arms and there and then
    Like the clean beasts, embracing from behind,
    Began in joy to found the breed of men.
    Alec Derwent Hope (b. 1907)
