Two more from Lord Byron

"I remember a methodist preacher who on perceiving a profane grin on the faces of part of his congregation exclaimed 'no hopes for them as laughs'"

"His answer was, that his style was a system, or upon system, or some such cant; and when a man talks of system, his case is hopeless."
