Louis Untermeyer Quotes

It takes a heap o’ children to make a home that’s true, And home can be a palace grand, or just a plain, old shoe; But if it has a mother dear, and a good old dad or two, Why, that’s the sort of good old home for good old me and you.

Life, alas, Is very drear. Up with the glass, Down with the beer!

From compromise and things half done, Keep me with stern and stubborn pride; And when at last the fight is won, God, keep me still unsatisfied.
