JOHN HOOKHAM FRERE
English poet
(1769 - 1846)

And don't confound the language of the nation
  With long-tailed words in osity and ation.
      - King Arthur and his Round Table
         (introduction, st. 6) [Language]

Their accents firm and loud in conversation,
  Their eyes and gestures eager, sharp and quick
    Showed them prepared on proper provocation
      To give the lie, pull noses, stab and kick!
        And for that very reason it is said
          They were so very courteous and well-bred.
      - Prospectus and Specimen of an Intended National Work
        [Courtesy]

A sudden thought strikes me--Let us swear an eternal friendship.
      - The Rovers (act I) [Friendship]
