Give me a fruitful error anytime, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections.Vilfredo Pareto

- Pouter, tumbler and fantail are from the same source;
The racer and hack may be traced to one horse;
So men were developed from monkeys of course,
Which nobody can deny.
- Originally published in The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin (1872).
- Though Darwin now proclaims the law
And spreads it far abroad, O!
The man that first the secret saw
Was honest old Monboddo.
The architect precedence takes
Of him that bears the hod, O!
So up and at them, Land of Cakes,
We'll vindicate Monboddo
- "The Memory of Monboddo: An Excellent New Song", in Blackwood's Magazine 90 (Sept. 1861): 363-64; reprinted in Charles, Lord Neaves, Songs and Verses (1875), Fourth Edition, page 5.
- So I wonder a woman, the Mistress of Hearts,
Should ascent to aspire to be Master of Arts;
A Ministering Angel in Woman we see,
And an Angel need cover no other Degree.
—O why should a Woman not get a Degree?
