I love thee, I love but thee, with a love that shall not die till the sun grows cold, and the stars are old, and the leaves of the Judgment Book unfold!
The sun had long since in the lap Of Thetis taken out his nap, And, like a lobster boil'd, the morn From black to red began to turn.Samuel Butler, Hudibras, Part II (1664), Canto II, line 29.
There lived a Parsee from whose hat the rays of the sun were reflected in more-than-oriental splendour.1902 Just So Stories,'How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin'.
Teach us delight in simple things And mirth that has no bitter springs; Forgiveness free of evil done, And love to all men 'neath the sun!1906 Puck of Pook's Hill,'Children's Song'.
The psycho-analyst infers the monstrous and abnormal from a trifle; it is often safe to reverse the process. If a man dreams that he has committed a sin before which the sun hid his face, it is often safe to conjecture that, in sheer forgetfulness, he wore a red tie, or brown boots with evening dress.arthur machen
Often, very often, I am alone. My studio in Amsterdam, (Beckmann lived in the center of Amsterdam during World War 2.) an enormous old tobacco storeroom is again filled in my imagination with figures from the old days and from the new, like an ocean moved by storm and sun and always present in my thoughts. Then shapes become beings and seem comprehensible to me in the great void and uncertainty of the space which I call god.max beckmann
Icarus flew too close to the sun.Daedulus and Icarus
Mislike me not for my complexion, The shadow’d livery of the burnish’d sun.Prince of Morocco, scene i
Of all the trees that grow so fair, Old England to adorn, Greater are none beneath the sun, Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.1906 Puck of Pook's Hill,'Tree Song'.
The Spanish voyager, as his caravel ploughed the adjacent seas, might give full scope to his imagination, and dream that beyond the long, low margin of forest which bounded his horizon lay hid a rich harvest for some future conqueror; perhaps a second Mexico with its royal palace and sacred pyramids, or another Cuzco with its temple of the sun, encircled with a frieze of gold. Haunted by such visions, the ocean chivalry of Spain could not long stand idle.francis parkman
Fluent in all the languages dead or living, the sun comes up with a word of worlds all spinning in a world of words.1979 An Incorrigible Music,'A Balanced Bait in Handy Pellet Form'.
The same Being that fashioned the insect, whose existence is only discerned by a microscope, and gave that invisible speck a system of ducts and other organs to perform its vital functions, created the enormous mass of the planet thirteen hundred times larger than our earth, and launched it in its course round the sun, and the comet, wheeling with a velocity that would carry it round our globe in less than two minutes of time, and yet revolving through so prodigious a space that it takes near six centuries to encircle the sun!brougham, henry, 1st baron brougham and vaux
At the beginning God said: “Let there be light,” and light was, and light is, and light shall be. So Christianity is rolling on, and it is going to warm all nations, and all nations are to bask in its light. Men may shut the window-blinds so they cannot see it, or they may smoke the pipe of speculation until they are shadowed under their own vaporing; but the Lord God is a sun!thomas de witt talmage
Aim at the sun, and you may not reach it; but your arrow will fly far higher than if aimed at an object on a level with yourself.Joel Hawes, as quoted in You're Born an Original - Don't Die a Copy (1993) by John Mason, Revell; in Moments of Reflection (1995) by Jean Howarth and Mike Walton, Heinemann Educational Publishers; in Worth Repeating: More Than 5,000 Classic and Contemporary Quotes (2003) by Bob Kelly, Kregel Publications; and in Secrets of Mind Power (2005) by Harry Lorayne, Frederick Fell Publishers, Inc.
