Famous quotes containing the words nathaniel and/or wheeler:

    There is the grand truth about Nathaniel Hawthorne. He says NO! in thunder; but the Devil himself cannot make him say yes. For all men who say yes, lie; and all men who say no,—why, they are in the happy condition of judicious, unincumbered travellers in Europe; they cross the frontiers into Eternity with nothing but a carpet-bag,—that is to say, the Ego. Whereas those yes-gentry, they travel with heaps of baggage, and, damn them! they will never get through the Custom House.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    With care, and skill, and cunning art,
    She parried Time’s malicious dart,
    And kept the years at bay,
    Till passion entered in her heart
    And aged her in a day!
    —Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850–1919)
