“Weeds are just flowers
Planted where you do not want them to be”
“Always sit by a window
Where you can see the Trees”
“These long years later it is worse
for I remember what it was
as well as what it might have been”
“To those of whom much is given
Much is required”
John F Kennedy
“To Love” – Earl of Rochester
“Such sweet, dear, tempting
Devils Women are”
“Satire Against Reason and Mankind” – Rochester
“For wits are treated just like common Whores:
First they’re enjoyed, and then kicked out of doors”
Some Irish/English/American Limericks
There was a young gal name Sally
Who loved an occasional dally.
She sat on the lap
of a well-endowed chap
Crying “gee, Dick, you’re right up my alley”
I finally found the perfect girl.
I could not ask for more.
She’s deaf and dumb and oversexed.
And owns a liquor store
Attributed to the late Dean Martin
T S Eliot is quite at a loss
When clubwomen bustle across
At literary teas
Crying, “What if you please
Did you mean by The Mill On The Floss”
W. H. Auden (“The Mill on the Floss” by George Eliot my favourite book)
