Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Chair
 
I love it, I love it, and who shall dare
To chide one for loving that old arm-chair?
        Eliza Cook.—The old arm-chair.
  1
There is no flock, however watch’d and tended,
  But one dead lamb is there;
There is no fireside howsoe’er defended,
  But has one vacant chair.
        Longfellow.—Resignation.
  2
So much the vital spirits sink
To see the vacant chair and think,
How good! how kind! and he is gone!
        Tennyson.—In Memoriam.
