Firebugs dragging their gasoline bottles Are approaching the Academy of Arts, with a grin. And so, instead of embracing them, Let us demand the freedom of the elbow To knock the bottles out of their filthy hands. Even the most blockheaded bureaucrat, Provided he loves peace, Is a greater lover of the arts Than any so-called art-lover Who loves the arts of war.
There is no fury like an ex-wife looking for a new lover.
Over this damp grave I speak the words of my love; I, with no rights in this matter, Neither father nor lover.will rogers
A husband is what is left of the lover after the nerve has been extracted.Helen Rowland
Jesu, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high; Hide me,O my Saviour, hide, Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last.Charles Wesley
Therefore am I still A lover of the meadows and the woods, And mountains; and of all that we behold From this green earth; of all the mighty world Of eye, and ear,both what they half create And what perceive.william wordsworth
Religion exalts mystery as an unknowable secret that must be sealed in glass like the corpse of an enchanted princess and fearfully worshipped from afar. Initiation, on the other hand, requires direct participation and demands each of us to smash the casket and press mad lips to mystery, wooing her as a lover who will offer up her treasurers in a succession of sweet surrenders. This she will do, but only in exact ratio to our evolving ability and worthiness to receive them.lon milo duquette
No martyr ever went the way of duty, and felt the shadow of death upon it. The shadow of death is darkest in the valley, which men walk in easily, and is never felt at all on a steep place, like Calvary. Truth is everlasting, and so is every lover of it; and so he feels himself almost always.william mountford

A few things for themselves, Florida , venereal soil, Disclose to the lover.wallace stevens
And in this unity into which I was taken and where I was enlightened,File:Kamas3.jpgWe were one without distinction...just as a beloved may receive her lover in the full pleasure of seeing and hearing, with the one becoming one with the otherI understood this Being and knew it more clearly than, by speech, reason, or sight, one can know anything that is knowable on earth
And lilies white, prepared to touch The whitest thought, nor soil it much, Of dreamer turned to lover.
And the wind, full of wantonness, wooes like a lover The young aspen-trees till they tremble all over.thomas moore
If thou lookest on the lime-leaf, Thou a heart's form will discover; Therefore are the lindens ever Chosen seats of each fond lover.Heinrich Heine
'Tis true no lover has that pow'r T' enforce a desperate amour, As he that has two strings t' his bow, And burns for love and money too.
How happy the lover, how easy his chain, how pleasing his pain. How sweet to discover, he sighs not in vain.john dryden
