To save your world you asked this man to die; Would this man, could he see you now, ask why?
Wystan Hugh Auden
George the First was always reckoned Vile, but viler George the Second; And what mortal ever heard Any good of George the Third? When from earth the Fourth descended God be praised, the Georges ended!
Walter Savage Landor
But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell! Did ye not hear it?No! 't was but the wind, Or the car rattling o'er the stony street. On with the dance! let joy be unconfined; No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.
Lord George Gordon Byron
