Here lies a lady of beauty and high degree. Of chills and fever she died, of fever and chills, The delight of her husband, her aunts, an infant of three, And of medicos marvelling sweetly on her ills.
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees Is my destroyer. And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.
May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done! Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last.John Henry Newman
The hand that signed the treaty bred a fever, And famine grew, and locusts came; Great is the hand that holds dominion over Man by a scribbled name.
Shivering in fever, weak, and parched to sand,My ears, those entrances of word-dressed thoughts,My pictured eyes, and my assuring touch,Fell from me, and my body turned me forthFrom its beloved abode: then I was dead;And in my grave beside my corpse I sat,In vain attempting to returnthomas lovell beddoes
"Hay fever suffers tend to be above average in intelligence,..."andrew tobias
So, when a raging fever burns,We shift from side to side by turns;And 't is a poor relief we gainTo change the place, but keep the pain.Isaac Watts
The fretful stir Unprofitable, and the fever of the world Have hung upon the beatings of my heart.william wordsworth
Fame lulls the fever of the soul, and makes Us feel that we have grasp'd an immortality.joaquin miller
Give me bitter years of sickness, Suffocation, insomnia, fever, Take my child and my lover, And my mysterious gift of song This I pray at your liturgy After so many tormented days, So that the stormcloud over darkened Russia Might become a cloud of glorious rays.anna akhmatova
To call out for the hand of the enemy is a rather extreme measure, yet a better one, I think, than to remain in continual fever over an accident that has no remedy. But since all the precautions that a man can take are full of uneasiness and uncertainty, it is better to prepare with fine assurance for the worst that can happen, and derive some consolation from the fact that we are not sure that it will happen.Michel de Montaigne
Only in the fever of creation could she recreate her own lost life.anaïs nin
This indictment is a kind of fever that flares up from time to time. It flared up after "Defender of the Faith," again after "Goodbye Columbus," and understandably it went way up to about 107 after "Portnoy's Complaint." Now there's just a low-grade fever running, nothing to worry about.philip roth
We wonder if this can be really the close, Life's fever cooled by death's trance. And we cry, though it seems to our dearest of foes, "God give us another chance."
The general's disdain'd By him one step below; he by the next; That next by him beneath; so every step, Exampled by the first pace that is sick Of his superior, grows to an envious fever Of pale and bloodless emulation.william shakespeare
There is a case cited by Korzybski in Science and Sanity of a man who suffered from hay fever whenever there were roses in the room. In an experiment, a bunch of roses was produced unexpectedly in front of him, and he immediately had a violent attack of hay fever, despite the fact that the "roses" in this case were made of paper .
I have now so many fundamental thoughts, so many really metaphysical things to say, that I suddenly get tired and decide not to write more, not to think more, but allow the fever of saying to make me sleepy, and fondle, with closed eyes, as if to a cat, all that I could have said.
I don't care whether I have Roman fever or not!
When the fretful stir Unprofitable, and the fever of the world Have hung upon the beatings of my heart.
Let you sleeping head, my love, Human on my faithless arm; Time and fever burns away Individual beauty from Thoughtful children and the grave Proves the child ephemeral; But in my arms till break of day Let the living creature lie: Mortal , guilty , but to me The entirely beautiful .
Every dance is a kind of fever chart, a graph of the heart.martha graham
