    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteThough the practice of chivalry fell even more sadly short of its theoretic standard than practice generally falls below theory, it remains one of the most precious monuments of the moral history of our race, as a remarkable instance of a concerted and organized attempt by a most disorganized and distracted society, to raise up and carry into practice a moral ideal greatly in advance of its social condition and institutions; so much so as to have been completely frustrated in the main object, yet never entirely inefficacious, and which has left a most sensible, and for the most part a highly valuable impress on the ideas and feelings of all subsequent times.

 John Stuart Mill quotes (English exponent of Utilitarianism, ethical theorist, Philosopher, Economist and Logician. 1806-1873)

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteSAFETY-CLUTCH, n. A mechanical device acting automatically to prevent the fall of an elevator, or cage, in case of an accident to the hoisting apparatus.



Once I seen a human ruin In an elevator-well, And his members was bestrewin' All the place where he had fell.



And I says, apostrophisin' That uncommon woful wreck:

"Your position's so surprisin' That I tremble for your neck!"



Then that ruin, smilin' sadly And impressive, up and spoke:

"Well, I wouldn't tremble badly, For it's been a fortnight broke."



Then, for further comprehension Of his attitude, he begs I will focus my attention On his various arms and legs --



How they all are contumacious; Where they each, respective, lie; How one trotter proves ungracious, T'other one an _alibi_.



These particulars is mentioned For to show his dismal state, Which I wasn't first intentioned To specifical relate.



None is worser to be dreaded That I ever have heard tell Than the gent's who there was spreaded In that elevator-well.



Now this tale is allegoric -- It is figurative all, For the well is metaphoric And the feller didn't fall.



I opine it isn't moral For a writer-man to cheat, And despise to wear a laurel As was gotten by deceit.



For 'tis Politics intended By the elevator, mind, It will boost a person splendid If his talent is the kind.



Col. Bryan had the talent

(For the busted man is him) And it shot him up right gallant Till his head begun to swim.



Then the rope it broke above him And he painful come to earth Where there's nobody to love him For his detrimented worth.



Though he's livin' none would know him, Or at leastwise not as such. Moral of this woful poem: Frequent oil your safety-clutch. --Porfer Poog

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteMEERSCHAUM, n. (Literally, seafoam, and by many erroneously supposed to be made of it.) A fine white clay, which for convenience in coloring it brown is made into tobacco pipes and smoked by the workmen engaged in that industry. The purpose of coloring it has not been disclosed by the manufacturers.



There was a youth (you've heard before, This woeful tale, may be), Who bought a meerschaum pipe and swore That color it would he!



He shut himself from the world away, Nor any soul he saw. He smoke by night, he smoked by day, As hard as he could draw.



His dog died moaning in the wrath Of winds that blew aloof; The weeds were in the gravel path, The owl was on the roof.



"He's gone afar, he'll come no more," The neighbors sadly say. And so they batter in the door To take his goods away.



Dead, pipe in mouth, the youngster lay, Nut-brown in face and limb.

"That pipe's a lovely white," they say,

"But it has colored him!"



The moral there's small need to sing --

'Tis plain as day to you: Don't play your game on any thing That is a gamester too. --Martin Bulstrode
