Well Thumbed Wednesday

The Complete Cynic
Being Bunches of Wisdom Culled from the Calendars of

Oliver Herford
Ethel Watts Mumford
Addison Mizner

It's the 1911 edition, and it is a book filled with turned around common phrases and gorgeous illustrations.  Some of my favorites include

He laughs best,
who's laugh lasts.

I appolgize for the quality of some of the pics, it is a very old book
 and i didn't want to bend the spine too much

Fools rush in and win
where angels fear to tread

As thou hast made thy bed,
why lie about it?

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.

Stays make waist

On with the dance,
let joy be un-refined


Never too old to yearn.
