«EPIGRAM, n. A short, sharp saying in prose or verse, frequently characterize by acidity or acerbity and sometimes by wisdom. Following are some of the more notable epigrams of the learned and ingenious Dr. Jamrach Holobom:We know better the needs of ourselves than of others. To serve oneself is economy of administration.In each human heart are a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale. Diversity of character is due to their unequal activity.There are three sexes; males, females and girls.Beauty in women and distinction in men are alike in this: they seem to be the unthinking a kind of credibility.Women in love are less ashamed than men. They have less to be ashamed of.While your friend holds you affectionately by both your hands you are safe, for you can watch both his.»
