But most, thro' midnight streets I hearHow the youthful Harlot’s curseBlasts the new born Infant’s tear,And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse.
I don't believe in evil, I believe only in horror. In nature there is no evil, only an abundance of horror: the plagues and the blights and the ants and the maggots.karen blixen
These monster cities we live in today are blights of modern society. They will certainly give way to planned cities interlinked to the countryside. Everybody will live with the natural advantages of the country and the cultural associations of the town.james p. cannon
Thus suicidal selfishness, that blights The fairest feelings of the opening heart, Is destined to decay, whilst from the soil Shall spring all virtue, all delight, all love, And judgment cease to wage unnatural war With passion's unsubduable array.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Love denied blights the soul we owe to God.
