To see her is to love her ,

And love but her forever;

For nature made her what she is,

And never made sic anither !

Then gently scan you brother man,

       Still gentler sister woman ;

Tho' they may gang a kennin wrang,

       To step aside is human.

What's a' your jargon o' your schools ,

Your Latin names for horns and stools ;

If honest Nature made you fools.

                    -BURNS, First Epistle to J.Lapraik

Quotes on DRINKING

Inspiring bold John Barleycorn,

What dangers thou canst make us scorn !

Wi' tippenny, we fear nae evil;

Wi' usquebae, we'll face the devil !

Quotes on PLEASURE

But Pleasures are like poppies spread ;

You seize the flow'r, its bloom is shed !

Or like the snow-fall in a river ,

A moment white-then melts forever ;

                                          -BURNS, Tam O' Shanter
