George John Whyte-Melville (19 June 1821 – 5 December 1878) was a Scottish novelist of the sporting-field.
- When you sleep in your cloak there ’s no lodging to pay.
- For everything created
In the bounds of earth and sky
Has such longing to be mated,
It must couple or must die.
- Ah, better to love in the lowliest cot
Than pine in a palace alone.
- The life upon which youth fancies itself entering is very different from the life which age refuses to acknowledge it is on the eve of quitting.
