JOHN WILSON (2)
(USED PSEUDONYM CHRISTOPHER NORTH)
Scottish essayist, poet and novelist
(1785 - 1854)

Nae wut without a portion o' impertinence.
      - in Noctes Ambrosianae [Wit]

Would you repeat that again, sir, for it soun's sae sonorous that the words droon the ideas?
      - in Noctes Ambrosianiae, 27 [Words]

How bright the sunshine dances in its joy,
  O'er the still flow of this majestic river!
      - City of the Plague [Rivers]

Sometimes there are living beings in nature as beautiful as in romance; reality surpasses imagination; and we see breathing, brightening, and moving before our eyes, sights dearer to our hearts than any we ever beheld in the land of sleep.
      - The Lily of Liddesdale,
        in his 1822 collection entitled "Lights and Shadows of Scottish LIfe"
        [Beauty]
