Let not Ambition mock their useful toil, Their homely joys, and destiny obscure; Nor Grandeur hear with a disdainful smile, The short and simple annals of the poor.
Mock on, Mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau. Mock on, Mock on 'tis all in vain! You throw the sand against the wind, And the wind blows it back again.william blake
Buttercup: You Mock my pain.
Man in Black: Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.
Let not Ambition Mock their useful toil, Their homely joys and destiny obscure; Nor Grandeur hear, with a disdainful smile, The short and simple annals of the poor. The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power, And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave, Awaits alike th' inevitable hour, The paths of glory lead but to the grave.thomas gray
Ruin seize thee, ruthless King! Confusion on thy banners wait, Tho'fanned by Conquest's crimson wing They Mock the air with idle state.thomas gray
Whatever we are directed to pray for, we are also exhorted to work for; we are not permitted to Mock Jehovah, asking that of Him which we deem not worth our pains to acquire.elias lyman magoo
In our small chess community in Marylebone it would be Mock modesty on my part to deny that I have built up for myself a considerable name without ever actually having won a single game. Even the best players are sometimes beaten, and that is precisely what happens to me.Stephen Potter
I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves … too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of Mock patriotism: "Our country, right or wrong!" They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: "Our country — when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right."carl schurz
Well, thus we play the fools with the time, and the spirits of the wise sit in the clouds and Mock us.william shakespeare
For better or worse, we are the Court of Appeals for the Hollywood Circuit. Millions of people toil in the shadow of the law we make, and much of their livelihood is made possible by the existence of intellectual property rights. But much of their livelihood - and much of the vibrancy of our culture - also depends on the existence of other intangible rights: The right to draw ideas from a rich and varied public domain, and the right to Mock, for profit as well as fun, the cultural icons of our time.alex kozinski
The flouting infidel doth Mock when Christians cryCharles Lamb
One can't write a weird story of real power without perfect psychological detachment from the human scene, and a magic prism of imagination which suffuses them and style alike with that grotesquerie and disquieting distortion characteristic of morbid vision. Only a cynic can create horror for behind every masterpiece of the sort must reside a driving daemonic force that despises the human race and its illusions, and longs to pull them to pieces and Mock them.h. p. lovecraft
Female animals defending their young are notoriously ferocious and lack the playful delight in combat which characterizes the Mock combats of males of the same species. There seems very little ground for claiming that the mother of young children is more peaceful, more responsible, and more thoughtful for the welfare of the human race than is her husband or brother.Margaret Mead
When nobody in the world loves any other, naturally the strong will overpower the weak, the many will oppress the few, the wealthy will Mock the poor, the honoured will disdain the humble, the cunning will deceive the simple. Therefore all the calamities, strifes, complaints, and hatred in the world have arisen out of want of mutual love. Therefore the benevolent disapproved of this want.mozi
Come let us Mock at the wise; With all those calendars whereon They fixed old aching eyes, They never saw how seasons run, And now but gape at the sun.William Butler Yeats
Come let us Mock at the good That fancied goodness might be gay, And sick of solitude Might proclaim a holiday: Wind shrieked and where are they?William Butler Yeats
Sometime we see a cloud that's dragonish ; A vapour sometime like a bear or lion , A tower'd citadel, a pendant rock, A forked mountain , or blue promontory With trees upon 't, that nod unto the world , And Mock our eyes with air : thou hast seen these signs; They are black vesper's pageants.william shakespeare
O, beware, my lord of jealousy; It is the green-eyed monster which doth Mock The meat it feeds on; that cuckold lives in bliss, Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger; But, O, what damned minutes tells he o'er, Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet strongly loves!william shakespeare
O! beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-ey'd monster which doth Mock The meat it feeds on.william shakespeare
This is the rarest dream that e'er dull sleep Did Mock sad fools withal.william shakespeare
Thus we play the fools with the time; and the spirits of the wise sit in the clouds, and Mock us.
Christians, be ye more serious in your movements; Be ye not like a feather at each wind, And think not every water washes you. Ye have the Old and the New Testament, And the Pastor of the Church who guideth you Let this suffice you unto your salvation. If evil appetite cry aught else to you, Be ye as men, and not as silly sheep, So that the Jew among you may not Mock you.
