THE PEOPLE'S CASE.
I was early taught to work as well as play, My life has been one long, happy holiday; Full of work and full of playI dropped the worry on the wayAnd God was good to me every day. -John D. Rockefeller, Sr. (Poem written by him on his 88th birthday)
With no uncertainty of fate He brushed aside the angel throne, And strode through the emblazoned gate Into the Heaven of the Strong. -G. S. Viereck. (Poem on the death of J. P. Morgan the Elder)
"I don't recall your name, but your manners are familiar." -Oliver Herford, to a back-slapping person who approached him at the Players with a confident "You remember me?"
"Tut, tut, child!" said the Duchess. "Everything's got a moral, if you can only find it." - Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
