Theyare sped; And when they list, their lean and flashy songs 578 Grate on their scrannel Pipes of wretched straw, The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed, But swollen with wind, and the rank mist they draw, Rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread, Besides what the grim wolf with privy paw Daily devours apace, and nothing said, But that two-handed engine at the door, Stands ready to smite once, and smite no more.john milton
The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed, But, swoln with wind, and the rank mist they draw, Rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread: Besides what the grim wolf with privy paw Daily devours apace, and nothing said; But that two-handed engine at the door Stands ready to smite once, and smite no more.john milton
Uneasily the leaves fall at this season, forgetting what to do or where to go; the red amnesiacs of autumn drifting thru the graveyard forest. What they have forgotten they have forgotten: what they meant to do instead of fall is not in earth or time recoverable the fossils of intention, the shapes of Rot.Al Purdy
Nelson Mandela can Rot in prison until he dies or I die, whichever takes longer.pieter willem botha
Knowledge is like the carRot, few know by looking at the green top that the best part, the orange part, is there. Like the carRot, if you don't work for it, it will wither away and Rot. And finally, like the carRot, there are a great many donkeys and jackasses that are associated with it.nasreddin
If she forgets where she came from, if the people lose sight of what brought them along, if she listens to the deniers and mockers, then will begin the Rot and dissolution.Carl Sandburg

Society always issues an ultimatum to the innovator; conform to this world or expect the reward of a heretic or a traitor. Every generation metes out substantially the same punishment to those who fall far below and those who rise high above its standards. Thieves and prophets of a new day Rot in the same foul dungeon; murderers and the Savior of mankind agonize on adjacent crosses.
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
Ay, but to die, and go we know not where; To lie in cold obstruction and to Rot.
In an orchard there should be enough to eat, enough to lay up, enough to be stolen, and enough to Rot on the ground.
I have nothing against the smell of Rot but something against what hides the smell of Rot in the United States of America."
Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to Rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.
When the juices of trees have no means of escape, they clot and Rot in them, making the trees hollow and good for nothing.
Ay, but to die, and go we know not where; To lie in cold obstruction and to Rot; This sensible warm motion to become A kneaded clod; and the delighted spirit To bathe in fiery floods, or to reside In thrilling region of thick-ribbed ice; To be imprison’d in the viewless winds, And blown with restless violence round about The pendent world.
