We want great men who, when fortune frowns, will not be discouraged.
O fickle Fortune, why this cruel sporting? Why thus torment us poor sons of day? Nae mair your smiles can cheer me, nae mair your frowns can fear me, For the flowers of the forest are a' wade away.Richard Cobden
Fate sits on these dark battlements, and frowns; And as the portals open to receive me, Her voice, in sullen echoes, through the courts, Tells of a nameless deed.
Her very frowns are fairer far Than smiles of other maidens are.hartley coleridge
For the selfsame heaven That frowns on me looks sadly upon him.william shakespeare
Not shine to-day! Why, what is that to me, More than to Richmond? for the selfsame heaven That frowns on me, looks sadly upon him.
Fate steals along with silent tread, Found oftenest in what least we dread; frowns in the storm with angry brow, But in the sunshine strikes the blow.
The castled crag of Drachenfels, frowns o'er the wide and winding Rhine, Whose breast of waters broadly swells Between the banks which bear the vine, And hills all rich with blossom'd trees, And fields which promise corn and wine, And scatter'd cities crowning these, Whose far white walls along them shine.lord byron
Her very frowns are fairer far, than smiles of other maidens are.hartley coleridge
