Happy Birthday Robert Burns!

January 25th is the birthday of Robert Burns, Scotland's (unofficial) National Bard.

Born in 1759 in Ayrshire, Scotland, Robert Burns became a "literary celebrity" for his numerous poems and songs.
So lift your glasses to Robert Burns who gave us these quotes (among many, many others):

"Ah wad some power the giftie gie us
To see ourselves as others see us."

"The best laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft agley."

"My love is like a red, red rose
That 's newly sprung in June"

Don't miss our special on Carl Peterson's great CD "There was a Lad: Songs of Robert Burns"
