A Quote by Robert Southey on day, devil, and world

From his brimstone bed, at break of day, A-walking the Devil is gone, To look at his little snug farm of the World, And see how his stock went on.

A Quote by Robert Southey on brevity and words

If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeams. The more they are condensed, the deeper they burn.
