C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • We are little airy creatures,
  • All of different voice and features;
  • One of us in glass is set,
  • One of us you’ll find in jet,
  • T’other you may see in tin,
  • And the fourth a box within.
  • If the fifth you should pursue,
  • It can never fly from you.
  • Swift.
