PITHY QUOTES FROM PAST MASTERS



I asked a stupid haughty fool, who is the Librarian of the Dean & Chapter's Library in this city, if he had Leibnitz. He answered — 'We have no Museum in this Library for natural curiosities; but there is a mathematical Instrument-seller in the town, who shews such [an]imalcula thro' a glass of great magnifying powers.' Heaven & Earth! — he understood the word 'live Nits.'
