MORTIMER COLLINS
English poet and novelist
(1827 - 1876)

O, to bring back the great Homeric time,
  The simple manners and the deed sublime:
    When the wise Wanderer, often foiled by Fate,
      Through the long furrow drave the ploughshare straight.
      - Letter to the Rt. Hon. B. Disraeli, M.P.,
        published anonymously 1869 [Past]

There was an ape in the days that were earlier,
  Centuries passed and his hair became curlier;
    Centuries more gave a thumb to his wrist--
      Then he was a Man and a Positivist.
      - The British Birds (st. 5) [Evolution]

Life and the Universe show spontaneity;
  Down with ridiculous notions of Deity!
    Churches and creeds are lost in the mists;
      Truth must be sought with the Positivists.
      - The Positivists [Religion]

War in fact is becoming contemptible, and ought to be put down by the great nations of Europe, just as we put down a vulgar mob.
      - Thoughts in my Garden (II, 243) [War]
