    John Paxton (1911–1985)

    Passion is here a soilure of the wits,
    We’re told, and Love a cross for them to bear;
    Joy shivers in the corner where she knits
    And Conscience always has the rocking-chair,
    Cheerful as when she tortured into fits
    The first cat that was ever killed by Care.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    “Alas! Good Lord,” he said. “I have killed my former master, my friend, and my brother-in-law; I am the kindest man in the world, and here are three men I have already killed; and two of the three are priests.”
    Voltaire [Fran├žois Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
