John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:4559
AUTHOR:William Cowper (1731–1800)
QUOTATION:He sees that this great roundabout
The world, with all its motley rout,
  Church, army, physic, law,
Its customs and its businesses,
Is no concern at all of his,
  And says—what says he?—Caw.
ATTRIBUTION:The Jackdaw. (Translation from Vincent Bourne).
