WILLIAM COMBE (COOMBE)
English satirical poet and miscellaneous writer
(1741 - 1823)

A paltry, humbug jest; those who have the least wit make them best.
      - [Jesting]

Along the varying road of life,
  In calm content, in toil or strife,
    At morn or noon, by night or day,
      As time conducts him on his way,
        How oft doth man, by care oppressed,
          Find in an Inn a place of rest.
      - Dr. Syntax in Search of the Picturesque
         (canto IX, l. 1) [Inns]

Where'er his fancy bids him roam,
  In ev'ry Inn he finds a home--
    . . . .
      Will not an Inn his cares beguile,
        Where on each face he sees a smile?
      - Dr. Syntax in Search of the Picturesque
         (canto IX, l. 13) [Inns]
