C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Gipsies
 
  There are men and women who are in life as the wild river and the night-owl, as the blasted tree and the wind over ancient graves.
Charles G. Leland.    
  1
        Gipsies, who every ill can cure,
Except the ill of being poor,
Who charms ’gainst love and agues sell,
Who can in hen-roost set a spell,
Prepar’d by arts, to them best known
To catch all feet except their own,
Who, as to fortune, can unlock it,
As easily as pick a pocket.
Churchill.
