I will on thee as on a comet look, A comet, the sad world's ill-boding book; Thy light as luctual and stain'd with woes I'll judge, where penal flames sit mixt and close. But though some think thou shin'st but to restrain Bold storms, and simply dost attend on rain; Yet I know well, and so our sins require, Thou dost but court cold rain, till rain turns fire.
No radiant pearl, which crested Fortune wears, No gem that twinkling hangs from Beauty's ears, Not the bright stars which Night's blue arch adorn, Nor rising suns that gild the vernal morn, Shine with such lustre as the tear that flows Down Virtue's manly cheek for others' woes.erasmus darwin
Africa does not have an uncle abroad who will come to bail it out of its political and economic woes. It is important that African countries wake up and pool whatever resources they have and jointly deal elements pulling our continent down a death blow.bernard membe
When one with honeyed words but evil mind Persuades the mob, great woes befall the state.Euripides
Do not dump your woes upon people keep the sad story of your life to yourself. Troubles grow by recounting them.elbert hubbard
The accent of conviction is made up of a mixture of faith, power, and love combined, forming a characteristic which is at once simple, pious, and grand, redolent of inspiration and sanctity. Here are no fabulous joys and woes; no hollow, fantastic sentimentalities; no wire-drawn refinings, either in thought or feeling; the passion that is traced before us has glowed in a living heart; the opinion he utters has risen in his own understanding, and'been a light to his own steps.
All these woes shall serve For sweet discourses in our time to come.william shakespeare
Care-charming Sleep, thou easer of all woes, Brother to Death.Dario Fo
O fleeting joys Of Paradise, dear bought with lasting woes!john milton
All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than the animals that know nothing. A day will come when science will turn upon its error and no longer hesitate to shorten our woes. A day will come when it will dare and act with certainty; when life, grown wiser, will depart silently at its hour, knowing that it has reached its term.Maurice Maeterlinck
There is a strain in Marx of the cleric, of the vulgar moralist. He paints the capitalist and the bourgeois as incarnations of evil; it is they who are responsible for the woes of mankind. The dismissal of the individual’s responsibility for his own misery is the quintessence of clericalism.john carroll
The soft complaining flute, In dying notes, discovers The woes of hopeless lovers.john dryden
To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite; To forgive wrongs darker than Death or Night; To defy Power, which seems Omnipotent; To love, and bear; to hope, till Hope creates From its own wreck the thing it contemplates; Neither to change nor falter nor repent; This, like thy glory, Titan! is to be Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free; This is alone Life; Joy, Empire, and Victory!Percy Bysshe Shelley
The idea of the "job" as the answer to all woes, individual and social, is one of the most pernicious myths of modern society.
The wind breath'd soft as lover's sigh, And, oft renew'd, seem'd oft to die, With breathless pause between, O who, with speech of war and woes, Would wish to break the soft repose Of such enchanting scene!walter scott
God grant you, friends, a helping hand In cares of state and private plights, In rowdy feasts of friendship's band, In passion's sweet and secret rites! God grant you, friends, a helping hand In daily woes and days of strife, On vacant sa, in distant land, In every black abyss of life!
woes, cluster; rare are solitary woes; They love a train, they tread each other's heel.Edward Young
To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite; To forgive wrongs darker than Death or Night ; To defy Power, which seems Omnipotent; To love, and bear; to hope, till Hope creates From its own wreck the thing it contemplates; Neither to change nor falter nor repent; This, like thy glory, Titan! is to be Good , great and joyous , beautiful and free ; This is alone Life ; Joy, Empire, and Victory !
The Spice-Tree lives in the garden green, Beside it the fountain flows; And a fair Bird sits the boughs between, And sings his melodious woes. * * * * * * That out-bound stem has branches three; On each a thousand blossoms grow; And old as aught of time can be, The root stands fast in the rocks below.
Riches cover a multitude of woes.
The soft complaining flute In dying notes discovers, the woes of hopeless lovers, whose dirge is whisper'd by the warbling lute.john dryden
His wretchedness, and his resistance, And his sad unallied existence: To which his spirit may oppose Itself and equal to all woes .
