British academic

Sir Walter Alexander Raleigh (5 September 186113 May 1922) was an English scholar, poet and author.


  • God's most candid critics are those of his children whom he has made poets.
  • I wish I loved the human Race,
    I wish I loved its silly face,
    I wish I liked the way it walks,
    I wish I liked the way it talks,
    And when I'm introduced to one,
    I wish I thought "what jolly fun"!
    • Poem, "Thoughts of an Old Man"
