Famous quotes containing the word gilbert:
“They soon became like brothers from community of wrongs;
They wrote each other little odes and sang each other songs;
They told each other anecdotes disparaging their wives;
On several occasions, too, they saved each others lives.”
—Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (18361911)
