Creative Quotations from . . .
Charles Dibdin
(1745-1814) born on
Mar 04
English dramatist, songwriter. He wrote 30 popular plays and one-man table entertainments; his 1,400 songs include "Tom Bowling."
His form was of the manliest beauty,
His heart was kind and soft;
Faithful below he did his duty,
But now he 's gone aloft.

Then trust me, there's nothing like drinking
So pleasant on this side the grave;
It keeps the unhappy from thinking,
And makes e'en the valiant more brave.
For they say there's a Providence sits up aloft,
To keep watch for the life of poor Jack!
In every mess I find a friend,
In every port a wife.
What argufies pride and ambition?
Soon or late death will take us in tow:
Each bullet has got its commission,
And when our time's come we must go.
