Famous quotes containing the words russell and/or lynes:

    Dear common flower, that grow’st beside the way,
    Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
    First pledge of blithesome May,
    Which children pluck, and, full of pride, uphold,
    Hight-hearted buccaneers, o’erjoyed that they
    An Eldorado in the grass have found,
    Which not the rich earth’s ample round
    May match in wealth—thou art more dear to me
    Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can’t ignore it, top it; if you can’t top it, laugh at it; if you can’t laugh at it, it’s probably deserved.
    —Russell Lynes (b. 1910)
