"Of all appeals - although/ I grant the power of pathos and of gold,/ Of beauty, flattery, threats, a shilling - no/ Method's more sure at moments to take hold/ Of the best feelings of mankind, which grow/ More tender, as we every day behold,/ Than that all-softening, overpowering knell,/ The tocsin of the soul - the dinner bell. -Byron".
