IK MARVEL
(PSEUDONYM OF DONALD G. MITCHELL)
American writer
(1822 - 1908)

The Spaniards have a saying that there is no man whom Fortune does not visit at least once in his life.
      - [Fortune]

Why should man's high aspiring mind
  Burn in him with so proud a breath;
    When all his haughty views can find
      In this world, yield to death;
        The fair, the brave, the vain, the wise,
          The rich, the poor, the great, the small,
            Are each but worms' anatomies,
              To strew his quiet hall.
      - [Death]

But wealth is a great means of refinement; and it is a security for gentleness, since it removes disturbing anxieties.
      - Reveries of a Bachelor--Over his Cigar
         (III) [Wealth]

Coquetry whets the appetite; flirtation depraves it. Coquetry is the thorn that guards the rose--easily trimmed off when once plucked. Flirtation is like the slime on water-plants, making them hard to handle, and when caught, only to be cherished in slimy waters.
      - Reveries of a Bachelor--Sea Coal (I)
        [Coquetry]
