More quotes by Guiterman, Arthur

The tusks which clashed in mighty brawls
Of mastodons, are billiard balls.

Was feared by all, is now a rug.
Great Caesar’s bust is on the shelf,
And I don’t feel so well myself.

Arthur Guiterman (1871-1943) American poet, humorist
“On the Vanity of Earthly Greatness”
