Quotations by Thomas Hood

A certain portion of the human race has certainly a taste for being diddled.

And then in the fulness of joy and hope, Seemed washing his hands with invisible soap, In imperceptible water.

But evil is wrought by want of thought as well as want of heart!

But who would rush at a benighted man, and give him two black eyes for being blind?

Gold! Gold! Gold! Bright and yellow, hard and cold.

My books kept me from the ring, the dog-pit, the tavern, and the saloon.

Oh, God! that bread should be so dear! And flesh and blood so cheap!

The best of friends fall out, and so His teeth had done some years ago.
