Famous quotes containing the words lee and/or watson:

    ...I am an abolitionist for the sake of my own race—Contact with the African degenerates our white race—I find the association with them injurious to my child—keenly as I watch to prevent it & his faithful nurse to help me ... She is a good woman & so are many of them—Still the race is a degraded one ...
    —Elizabeth Blair Lee (1818–?)

    His friends he loved. His direst earthly foes—
    Cats—I believe he did but feign to hate.
    My hand will miss the insinuated nose,
    Mine eyes the tail that wagg’d contempt at Fate.
    —Sir William Watson (1858–1935)
