GAZELLES
[ Also see Animals Mammals ]

I never nursed a dear Gazelle to glad me with its soft black eye, but when it came to know me well, and love me, it was sure to marry a market-gardener.
      - Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop
         (ch. LVI)

The gazelles so gentle and clever
  Skip lightly in frolicsome mood.
      - Heinrich Heine, Book of Songs, Lyrical
         (interlude no. 9)

I never nurs'd a dear gazelle,
  To glad me with its soft black eye,
    But when it came to know me well
      And love me, it was sure to die.
      - Thomas Moore, The Fire Worshippers

I never had a piece of toast particularly long and wide,
  But fell upon the sanded floor,
    And always on the buttered side.
      - probably by James Payn,
        a parody of Moore's gazelle quote, probably by James Payn, appeared in Chambers' Journal
