Who Wrote?

1."There, in his mansion, skill'd to rule, The village master taught his little school; A man severe he was, and stern to view, I knew him well, and every truant knew; Well had the boding tremblers learn'd to trace The days disasters in his morning face; Full well they laugh'd with counterfeited glee, At all his jokes, for many a joke had he: (Sent in by Dorothy Coe) 2."When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow. When it healed, and Jem's fears of never being able to play football were assuaged, he was seldom self-conscious about his injury.

(Sent in by Nathan Davies) 3. "Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten."

(sent in by I Hayward)
