JOHN HAY
American writer and diplomatist
(1838 - 1905)

The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it.
      - [Tyranny]

A sentinel angel sitting high in glory
  Heard this shrill wail ring out from Purgatory:
    "Have mercy, mighty angel, hear my story!"
      - A Woman's Love [Mercy]

The angel answer'd, "Nay, said soul; go higher!
  To be deceived in your true heart's desire
    Was bitterer than a thousand years of fire!"
      - A Woman's Love [Deceit]

He were n't no saint--but at jedgment
  I'd run my chance with Jim.
    'Longside of some pious gentlemen
      That wouldn't shook hands with him.
        He seen his duty, a dead-sure thing--
          And went for it thar and then;
            And Christ ain't a-going to be too hard
              On a man that died for men.
      - Jim Bludso [Character]

I think that saving a little child
  And bringing him to his own,
    Is a derned sight better business
      Than loafing around the throne.
      - Little Breeches [Childhood]

You may rezoloot till the cows come home.
      - Little Breeches--Banty Tim [Cows]
