  • Music is the universal language of mankind.
    • Nocted Ambrosianae (1822-5).


  • You did late review my lays,
    Crusty Christopher;
    You did mingle blame and praise,
    Rusty Christopher.
    When I learnt from whom it came,
    I forgave you all the blame,
    Musty Christopher;
    I could _not_ forgive the praise,
    Fusty Christopher.
