Quote for the Day

Sir Joseph:
I grew so rich that I was sent
By a pocket borough into Parliament.
I always voted at my party's call,
And I never thought of thinking for myself at all.

He never thought of thinking for himself at all.

Sir Joseph:
I thought so little, they rewarded me
By making me the Ruler of the Queen's Navee!

Gilbert & Sullivan, Lyrics (part) of When I Was a Lad, from HMS Pinafore
