    A sergeant of the lawe, war and wys,

    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    For the theatre one needs long arms; it is better to have them too long than too short. An artiste with short arms can never, never make a fine gesture.
    Sarah Bernhardt (1844–1923)

    I incline to think that the people will not now sustain the policy of upholding a State Government against a rival government, by the use of the forces of the United States. If this leads to the overthrow of the de jure government in a State, the de facto government must be recognized.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    My only rival, the United States cavalry.
    James Kevin McGuinness, and John Ford. Mrs. Yorke (Maureen O’Hara)

    Up the reputable walks of old established trees
    They stalk, children of the nouveaux riches; chimes
    Of the tall Clock Tower drench their heads in blessing:
    “I don’t wanna play at your house;
    I don’t like you any more.”
    My house stands opposite, on the other hill,
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)
