Quote of the Day for 2015-09-26

"'Come, come,' said Tom's father, 'at your time of life, / There's no longer excuse for thus playing the rake— / It is time you should think, boy, of taking a wife.' / 'Why, so it is father—whose wife shall I take?'"

Thomas Moore (1779-1852) "A Joke Versified," Fables for the Holy Alliance

Illustration and title page of The Country Wife by William Wycherley.
