1 "The children who were broughtto hear The awful Tale from far and near Were much impressed, and inly swore They never more would slam the Door As often they had done before".

(Sent in by Jenny Blackburn) 2 "But for the most part, women are not educated as they should be, I mean those of quality; oft their education is only to dance, sing, and fiddle, to write complimental letters, to read romances, to speak some languages that is not their native...their parents take more care of their feet than their head, more of their words than their reason."

3 "Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a good education."
