Sam Walter Foss
He had a startling genius, but somehow it did n't emerge;
Always on the evolution of things that would n't evolve;
Always verging toward some climax, but he never reached the verge;
Always nearing the solution of some theme he could not solve.
Foss quotes
The sweet mellifluous milking of the cow.
We felt the universe wuz safe, an' God wuz on his throne.

Foss Sam Walter quotes
Strew gladness on the paths of menó
You will not pass this way again.
Foss Sam Walter
There are purple grapes in the Land of Git-Thare.
Sam Walter Foss quotes
I say the very things that make the greatest Stir
An' the most interestin' things, are things that did n't occur.
Sam Walter Foss
A hundred thousand men were led
By one calf near three centuries dead;
They followed still his crooked way
And lost a hundred years a day;
For thus such reverence is lent
To well-established precedent.
