Sir William Gilbert (1836-1911) English Playwright and Poet

“Things are seldom what they seem, / Skim milk masquerades as cream.”

– Sir William Gilbert

“If you wish in this world to advance your merits you’re bound to enhance; you must stir it and stump it, and blow your own trumpet, or, trust me, you haven’t a chance.”
– Sir William Gilbert
“When you’re lying awake with a dismal headache, and repose is tabooed by anxiety, / I conceive you may use any language you choose to indulge in without impropriety.

– Sir William Gilbert
