Oh there is blessing in this gentle breeze, Avisitant that while it fans my cheek Doth seem half conscious of the joy it brings From the green fields, and from yon azure sky. Whate'er its mission, the soft breeze can come To none more grateful than to me; escaped From the vast city, where I long had pined A discontented sojourner: now free, Free as a bird to settle where I will.

The way was long, the wind was cold, The Minstrel was infirm and old; His withered cheek, and tresses grey, Seemed to have known a better day; The harp, his sole remaining joy, Was carried byan orphan boy, The last of all the Bards was he, Who sung of Border chivalry.

Turning the other cheek is a kind of moral jiu-jitsu.gerald stanley lee

There Affectation, with a sickly mien, Shows in her cheek the roses of eighteen.Alexander Pope
We bleed, we tremble; we forget, we smile The mind turns fool, before the cheek is dry.Edward Young
On the cold cheek of Death smiles and roses are blending, And beauty immortal awakes from the tomb.james beattie

Upon thy cheek I lay this zealous kiss, As seal to the indenture of my love
I have serviced no kings , yet I wager that I can shave a cheek with ten times more dexterity than any street mountebank!
O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night, like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear. Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!william shakespeare

Anarchism is voluntary cooperation for good , with the right of secession. A Christian anarchist is therefore one who turns the other cheek, overturns the tables of the moneychangers, and does not need a cop to tell him how to behave. A Christian anarchist does not depend upon bullets or ballots to achieve his ideal; he achieves that ideal daily by the One-Man Revolution with which he faces a decadent, confused, and dying world .
