Rossiter Johnson

With the enormous and steady increase in the volume of our literature, we must rely more and more upon sympathetic selection, judicious editing, and the indexer who knows where to exercise discretion. Any simpleton can write a book, but it requires high skill to make an index.More Rossiter Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How it pours, pours, pours,
In a never-ending sheet!
How it drives beneath the doors!
How it soaks the passer's feet!
How it rattles on the shutter!
How it rumples up the lawn!
How 'twill sigh, and moan, and mutter,
From darkness until dawn.More Rossiter Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When my water-proof umbrella proved a sieve, sieve, sieve,
When my shiny new umbrella proved a sieve.More Rossiter Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
O for a lodge in a garden of cucumbers!
O for an iceberg or two at control!
O for a vale that at midday the dew cumbers!
O for a pleasure trip up to the pole!More Rossiter Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How it pours, pours, pours,
