Famous quotes containing the words carey thomas, carey and/or thomas:

    One thing I am determined on is that by the time I die my brain shall weigh as much as a man’s if study and learning can make it so.
    —M. Carey Thomas (1857–1935)

    All ye poets of the age,
    All ye witlings of the stage,
    Learn your jingles to reform,
    Crop your numbers to conform.
    Let your little verses flow
    Gently, sweetly, row by row;
    Let the verse the subject fit,
    Little subject, little wit.
    Namby-Pamby is your guide,
    Albion’s joy, Hibernia’s pride.
    —Henry Carey (1693?–1743)

    Where he swings in the wind and rain,
    In the sun and in the snow,
    Without pleasure, without pain,
    On the dead oak tree bough.
    —Edward Thomas (1878–1917)
