John Wolcot
Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt,
And every grin so merry draws one out.
Wolcot quotes
People may have too much of a good thing:
Full as an egg of wisdom thus I sing.
No, let the monarch’s bags and others hold
The flattering, mighty, nay, al-mighty gold.

Wolcot John quotes
What rage for fame attends both great and small!
Better be damned than mentioned not at all.
Wolcot John
A fellow in a market town,
Most musical, cried razors up and down.
