A Quote by Sir William Schwenck Gilbert on animals, good, names, and science

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus, I know the scientific names of beings animalculous; In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral, I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836 - 1911)
