Halaman 352 - The devil was sick, the devil a monk would be ; The devil was well, the devil a monk was he.
Halaman 16 - We may live without poetry, music, and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
