Thomas Edward Brown (May 5, 1830, Douglas, Isle of Man - October 29, 1897), was a Manx poet, scholar and theologian.


A Garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot,
The veriest school of Peace; and yet the fool contends that God is not—
Not God! in Gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign:
'T is very sure God walks in mine.
  • My Garden, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).


  • A rich man's joke is always funny.
