'Tis strange - but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction.

A lady of a certain age, which means Certainly aged.

All tragedies are finish'd by death,
All comedies are ended by a marriage.

Friendship is Love without his wings!

I awoke one morning and found myself famous.

Like the measles, love is most dangerous when it comes late in life.

Now I shall go to sleep. Goodnight.

Of all the horrid, hideous notes of woe,
Sadder than owl-songs or the midnight blast,
Is that portentous phrase, I told you so,
Uttered by friends, those prophets of the past.

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar;
I love not Man the less, but Nature more.

Years steal Fire from the mind as vigour from the limb; And Life's enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim.
