WILLIAM HONE
English compiler, writer and bookseller
(1779 - 1842)

Here quench your thirst, and mark in me
  An emblem of true charity;
    Who, while my bounty I bestow,
      Am neither seen, nor heard to flow.
      - [Water]

Mr. Howel Walsh, in a corporation case tried at the Tralee assizes, observed that a corporation cannot blush. It was a body, it was true; had certainly a head--a new one very year--an annual acquisition of intelligence in every new lord mayor. Arms he supposed it had, and very long ones too, for it could reach at anything. Legs, of course, when it made such long strides. A throat to swallow the rights of the community, and a stomach to digest them. But who ever yet discovered, in the anatomy of any corporation, either bowels or a heart?
      - Table-Book [Business]
