The soul secured in her existence, smiles At the drawn dagger, and defies its point. The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the war of elements, The wreck of matter, and the crash of worlds.
Consider The lilies of the field whose bloom is brief:– We are as they; Like them we Fade away, As doth a leaf.christina rossetti
The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point?but I still remember the refrain of one of the most popular ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that old soldiers never die; they just Fade away.Douglas MacArthur
In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments Fade to trivia.charles lindbergh
Fade far away, dissolve, and quite forget What thou among the leaves hast never known, The weariness, the fever, and the fret Here, where men sit and hear each other groan; Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last gray hairs, Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, and dies; Where but to think is to be full of sorrow And leaden-eyed despairs.john keats
Oh! ever thus, from childhood's hour, I've seen my fondest hopes decay; I never loved a tree or flower, But 'twas the first to Fade away. I never nursed a dear gazelle, To glad me with its soft black eye, But when it came to know me well, And love me, it was sure to die!thomas moore
Here's the lily, here the roseHer full chalice shall disclose;Here's narcissus wet with dew,Windflower and the violet blue.Wear the garland I have made;Crowned with it, put pride away;For the wreath that blooms must Fade;Thou thyself must Fade some day, Rhodocleia.maurice baring
Eternity invests every state, whether of bliss or of suffering, with a mysterious and awful importance, entirely its own. It gives that weight and moment to whatever it attaches, compared to which all interests that know a period Fade into absolute insignificance.robert hall
Eternity has no gray hairs! The flowers Fade, the heart withers, man grows old and dies, the world lies down in the sepulchre of ages, but time writes no wrinkles on the brow of Eternity.Reginald Heber
A flower may Fade before 'tis noon,And I this day may lose my breath.Isaac Watts
Literature is the noblest of all the arts. Music dies on the air, or at best exists only as a memory; oratory ceases with the effort; the painter's colors Fade and the canvas rots; the marble is dragged from its pedestal and is broken into fragments.elbert hubbard
The stars shall Fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the wars of elements, The wrecks of matter, and the crush of worlds.joseph addison
Go gather by the humming sea Some twisted, echo-harboring shell, And to its lips thy story tell, And they thy comforters will be, rewarding in melodious guile fretful words a little while, Till they shall singing Fade in ruth And dies a pearly brotherhood; For words alone are certain good: Sin, then, for this is also sooth.
One picture in ten thousand, perhaps, ought to live in the applause of mankind, from generation to generation until the colors Fade and blacken out of sight or the canvas rot entirely away.Nathaniel Hawthorne
Tout ce qu'on dit de trop est Fade et rebutant.
Eternity has no gray hairs! The flowers Fade, the heart withers, man grows old and dies, the world lies down in the sepulchre of ages, but time writes no wrinkles on the brow of Eternity.
I have loved flowers that Fade, Within whose magic tents Rich hues have marriage made With sweet unmemoried scents.robert bridges
How fleeting is the world ... Yet it survives It is ourselves that Fade from it and our ephemeral lives.
