How To Make A Man Of Consequence

A BROW austere, a circumspective eye,

A frequent shrug of the os humeri,

A nod significant, a stately gait,

A blustering manner, and a tone of weight,

A smile sarcastic, an expressive stare,--

Adopt all these, as time and place will bear:

Then rest assured that those of little sense

Will deem you, sure, a man of consequence.
