BISHOP GEORGE WASHINGTON DOANE
American ecclesiastic, inspirational writer and poet
(1799 - 1859)

Death darkens his eyes, and unplumes his wings,
  Yet the sweetest song is the last he sings:
    Live so, my Love, that when death shall come,
      Swan-like and sweet it may waft thee home.
      - [Swans]

Enthusiasm is the element of success in everything. It is the light that leads and the strength that lifts men on and up in the great struggles of scientific pursuits and of professional labor. It robs endurance of difficulty, and makes a pleasure of duty.
      - [Enthusiasm]

Soon for me the Light of day
  Shall forever pass away;
    Then from sin and sorrow free,
      Take me, Lord, to dwell with Thee.
      - [Death]

"The hand that rocks the cradle"--but there is no such hand.
  It is bad to rock the baby, they would have us understand;
    So the cradle's but a relic of the former foolish days,
      When mothers reared their children in unscientific ways;
        When they jounced them and they bounced them, those poor dwarfs of long ago--
          The Washingtons and Jeffersons, you know.
      - ascribed to [Babyhood]

To be a gentleman does not depend upon the tailor or the toilet. Good clothes are not good habits. A gentleman is just a gentle-man,--no more, no less; a diamond polished, that was first a diamond in the rough.
      - [Gentlemen]

Take a little rum
  The less you take the better
    Pour it in the lakes
      Of Wener or of Wetter.
        Dip a spoonful out
          And mind you don't get groggy,
            Pour it in the lake
              Of Winnipissiogie.
                Stir the mixture well
                  Lest it prove inferior,
                    Then put half a drop
                      Into Lake Superior.
                        Every other day
                          Take a drop in water,
                            You'll be better soon
                              Or at least you oughter.
      - Lines on Homeopathy [Medicine]
