It's weel wi' you gentles, that can sit in the house wi' handkerchers at your een when ye lose a friend; but the like o'us maun to our wark again, if our hearts were beating as hard as my hammer. 724
Life! we've been long togetherThrough pleasant and through cloudy weather;Tis hard to part when friends are dear,—Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear.Then steal away, give little warning.Choose thine own time,Say not "Good-night," but in some brighter clime,Bid me "Good-morning."anna letitia barbauld

To believe in God is not hard. Inquisitors, Biron and Arakcheev believed in Him. No, believe in man!Anton Chekhov
Mole stood still a moment, held in thought. As one wakened suddenly from a beautiful dream, who struggles to recall it, and can re-capture nothing but a dim sense of the beauty of it, the beauty! Till that, too, fades away in its turn, and the dreamer bitterly accepts the hard, cold waking and all its penalties; so Mole, after struggling with his memory for a brief space, shook his head sadly and followed the Rat.Kenneth Grahame
Platero is a small donkey, a soft, hairy donkey: so soft to the touch that he might be said to be made of cotton, with no bones. Only the jet mirrors of his eyes are hard like two black crystal scarabs.juan ramón jiménez
The right thing to do and the hard thing to do are usually the same thing.steve maraboli
It was all a matter of hard work and luck, and Ryan didn't mind either of those. No, the stuff that wore you down was the parts where no amount or work seemed to make the difference, where luck simply wasn't there and wasn't coming and you couldn't seem to explain that to someone who had their heart set on the world being the way it was supposed to be, instead of the way it was.michael marshall smith

If you are not ready, and did not know what to do, it could hurt you in different ways. It could knock you down, hard, or throw you against a tree or a wall. It is such a big explosion, it can smash in buildings and knock signboards over, and break windows all over town, but if you duck and cover, like Burt [the Turtle], you will be much safer.
If you [Americans] behave with disrespect – even just a little bit – [the Iranian people] will punch you in the mouth so hard that all your devouring teeth will fall off.
Some for hard masters, broken under arms, In battle lopt away, with half their limbs, Beg bitter bread thro' realms their valour saved.Edward Young
They threaten me with lung cancer, and still I smoke and smoke. If they'd only threaten me with hard work, I might stop.
now the profile of our country looks a little less hard nosed / but that picket line persisted and that clinic's since been closed / they keep pounding their fists on reality hoping it will break / but I don't think there's a one of us leads a life free of mistakesani difranco
Every time you talk about Vietnam, it's always the Vietnam war is summarized this way, "58,000 American killed and anywhere between 2 and 3 million Vietnamese." There is a distinction between 2 and 3 million, but that's okay. I used to joke all the time racism in America, is so endemic and so hard to see, but I was always I used to joke that I was very proud of Bill Clinton because he was the first president, in Kosovo , the former Yugoslavia, since World War II to actually bomb white people.
You just can't beat the person who never gives up.babe ruth
