Geese Quotes

“I tell you it will be more tolerable for the Fejee that salted down a lean missionary in his cellar against a coming famine; it will be more tolerable for that provident Fejee, I say, in the day of judgment, than for thee, civilized and enlightened gourmand, who nailest geese to the ground and feastest on their bloated livers in thy pate-de-foie-gras.”

Herman Mellville, 'Moby Dick' (1851)


"There was an Old Person of Nice,
Whose associates were usually Geese;
They walked out together, in all sorts of weather,
That affable Person of Nice!"

Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks  (1812-1888)
