George John Whyte-Melville (18211878) was a Scottish novelist of the sporting-field.


  • When you sleep in your cloak there ’s no lodging to pay.
    • Boots and Saddles.
  • For everything created
    In the bounds of earth and sky
    Has such longing to be mated,
    It must couple or must die.
    • Like to Like.
  • Ah, better to love in the lowliest cot
    Than pine in a palace alone.
    • Chastelar.
