Heralds and statesmen, by your leave, Here lies what once was Matthew Prior; The son of Adam and of Eve; Can Bourbon or Nassau go higher?Matthew Prior
In the middle of the last century there was comparatively little movement of workmen from place to place:;; but Adam Smith's fierce attack on the law of settlement shows that migration was on the increase. The world was, in fact, on the Eve of an industrial revolution:;; and it is interesting to remember that the two men who did most to bring it about, Adam Smith and James Watt, met, as I have mentioned, in Glasgow, when one was dreaming of the book, and the other of the invention, which were to introduce a new industrial age.Arnold Toynbee
I span and Eve span A thread to bind the heart of man!Dame MaryJean ne e Mary Jean Cameron Gilmore
Knowledge is a fine thing, and mother Eve thought so; but she smarted so severly for hers, that most of her daughters have been afraid of it since.Abigail Adams
The Lord made Adam, the Lord made Eve, he made ‘em both a little bit naive.yip harburg
The true unconscious is the well-head, the fountain of real motivity. The sex of which Adam and Eve became conscious derived from the very God who bade them be not conscious of it.
Ever since Eve gave Adam the apple, there has been a misunderstanding between the sexes about gifts.Nan Robertson
Adam the goodliest man of men since born His sons, the fairest of her daughters, Eve.john milton
After all these years I see that I was mistaken about Eve in the beginning; it is better to live outside the Garden with her than inside it without her.

The sunbeams dropped Their gold, and, passing in porch and niche, Softened to shadows, silvery, pale, and dun, As if the very Day paused and grew Eve.edwin arnold
My ungodly book speaks to you. On All Hallows Eve, when the moon is round, a virgin will summon us from under the ground! [laughs with a bit of glee] We shall be back, and the lives of all the children of Salem will be mine! BoooOOOOOOOOOOOOK!!!
I doubt not but the fire illuminating heaven on Michelmas Eve was seen there – such as I never saw for the time more fearful. God sendeth us such signs but for our erudition.cecil, william, 1st baron burghley
O nightingale, that on yon bloomy spray Warbl'st at Eve, when all the woods are still.john milton
On the Eve of the election last month my wife Judith and I were driving home late in the afternoon and turned on the radio for the traffic and weather. What we instantly got was a freak show of political pornography : lies , distortions, and half-truths half-truths being perhaps the blackest of all lies. They paraded before us as informed opinion.bill moyers
Dew-drops are the gems of morning, But the tears of mournful Eve!Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I care not, Fortune , what you me deny; You cannot rob me of free Nature's grace , You cannot shut the windows of the sky , Through which Aurora shows her brightening face; You cannot bar my constant feet to trace The woods and lawns, by living stream, at Eve.james thomson
I came at morn 'twas spring, I smiled, The fields with green were clad; I walked abroad at noon, and lo! 'Twas summer, I was glad; I sate me down; 'twas autumn Eve, And I with sadness wept; I laid me down at night, and then 'Twas winter, and I slept.
