I think myself that Leech could frame a gust of wind as effectually as Keene, by the sheer force of his untaught natural instinct- of his genius; but not with the deftness- this economy of material- this certainty of execution- this consummate knowledge of effect. – Social Pictorial Satire by George du Maurier
  3. These, that would have men still of men be foes, Eternal fox to prowl and pike to feed; Would keep our life the whirly pool Of turbid stuff dishonouring History; The herd the drover's herd, the fool the fool, Ourself our slavish self's infernal sun: These are the children of the heart untaught By thy quick founts to beat abroad, by thee Untamed to tone its passions under thought, The rich humaneness reading in thy fun. – The Complete Project Gutenberg Works of George Meredith by George Meredith
