Oliver Wendell Holmes


As these quotes do not indicate Sr or Jr, a closer attribution is not reliable. However, it is worth noting that in the late 19th century it was common for the elder Holmes' quotes to be identified simply as "Holmes" in various books and magazines, so if you feel compelled to quote any of these, just refer to "Oliver Wendell Holmes" without dates. I've researched most of the Holmes entries and have them fully sourced, please refer to the physician, author, and poet Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr and his son, the Supreme Court justice and author Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
