    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteHumane sentiments are baseless, mad, and improper; they are incredibly feeble; never do they withstand the gainsaying passions, never do they resist bare necessity.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteINCUBUS, n. One of a race of highly improper demons who, though probably not wholly extinct, may be said to have seen their best nights. For a complete account of _incubi_ and _succubi_, including

_incubae_ and _succubae_, see the _Liber Demonorum_ of Protassus

(Paris, 1328), which contains much curious information that would be out of place in a dictionary intended as a text-book for the public schools. Victor Hugo relates that in the Channel Islands Satan himself --tempted more than elsewhere by the beauty of the women, doubtless --sometimes plays at _incubus_, greatly to the inconvenience and alarm of the good dames who wish to be loyal to their marriage vows, generally speaking. A certain lady applied to the parish priest to learn how they might, in the dark, distinguish the hardy intruder from their husbands. The holy man said they must feel his brown for horns; but Hugo is ungallant enough to hint a doubt of the efficacy of the test.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteBEG, v. To ask for something with an earnestness proportioned to the belief that it will not be given.



Who is that, father?



A mendicant, child, Haggard, morose, and unaffable --wild! See how he glares through the bars of his cell! With Citizen Mendicant all is not well.



Why did they put him there, father?

--Because Obeying his belly he struck at the laws.



His belly?



Oh, well, he was starving, my boy -- A state in which, doubtless, there's little of joy. No bite had he eaten for days, and his cry Was "Bread!" ever "Bread!"



What's the matter with pie?



With little to wear, he had nothing to sell; To beg was unlawful --improper as well.



Why didn't he work?



He would even have done that, But men said: "Get out!" and the State remarked: "Scat!" I mention these incidents merely to show That the vengeance he took was uncommonly low. Revenge, at the best, is the act of a Siou, But for trifles --



Pray what did bad Mendicant do?



Stole two loaves of bread to replenish his lack And tuck out the belly that clung to his back.



Is that _all_ father dear?



There's little to tell: They sent him to jail, and they'll send him to --well, The company's better than here we can boast, And there's --



Bread for the needy, dear father?

--Um --toast. --Atka Mip
