Fame is a food that dead men eat.
HENRY AUSTIN DOBSON, Fame is a Food that Dead Men Eat
- All passes. Art alone
- Enduring stays to us;
- The Bust outlasts the throne,--
- The Coin, Tiberius.
HENRY AUSTIN DOBSON, Ars Victrix
- Life we drank to the dregs and lees;
- Give us--ah! give us--but Yesterday!
AUSTIN DOBSON, "The Prodigals", Collected Poems
