Arnold, Matthew (1822-88)

Arnold, Matthew

 

"One's age should be tranquil, as childhood should be playful. – Hard work at either extremity of life seems out of place. – At mid-day the sun may burn, and men labor under it; but in the morning and evening should be alike calm and cheerful."

"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose –
What made you so awfully clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father. "Don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"
