Music, when soft voices die, Vibrates in the memory Odours, when sweet violets sicken, Live within the sense they quicken. Rose leaves, when the rose is dead, Are heaped for the beloved's bed; And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone, Love itself shall slumber on.
Music when soft voices die, Vibrates in the memory Odours, when sweet violets sicken, Live within the sense they quicken.Percy Bysshe Shelley
It is easier to mend neglect than to quicken love.jerome
For we know the clod, by the grace of GodWill quicken with voice and breath;And we know that Love, with gentle handWill beckon from death to death.langdon smith
These are the moments when the powerful mind or the forceful character feels the ferment of the times, when his thoughts quicken, and when he can inject into the uncertainties of others the creative ideas which will strengthen them with purpose. At such a moment the man who can direct others, in thought or in action, can remake the world.jacob bronowski
It's surely summer, for there's a swallow: Come one swallow, his mate will follow, The bird rare quicken and wheel and thicken.Christina G. Rossetti, A Bird Song, Stanza 2.
Sacraments, ordained of Christ, are not only badges or tokens of Christian men's profession; but rather they are certain signs of grace, and God's good-will towards us, by the which He doth work invisibly in us, and doth not only quicken, but also strengthen and confirm our faith in Him.Articles of Methodist Episcopal Church, p. 526.
Look, what is done cannot be now amended: Men shall deal unadvisedly sometimes, Which after-hours give leisure to repent. If I did take the kingdom from your sons, To make amends, I'll give it to your daughter. If I have kill'd the issue of your womb, To quicken your increase, I will beget Mine issue of your blood upon your daughter.King Richard, scene iv (Act IV)
