With eyes up-raised, as one inspired, Pale Melancholy sate retired, And from her wild sequestered seat, In notes by distance made more sweet, Poured thro' the mellow horn her pensive soul.
Anger... it's a paralyzing emotion... you can't get anything done. People sort of think it's an interesting, passionate, and igniting feeling — I don't think it's any of that — it's helpless... it's absence of control — and I need all of my skills, all of the control, all of my powers — and I need clarity, in order to write — and anger doesn't provide any of that — I have no use for it whatsoever. I can feel melancholy, and I can feel full of regret, but anger is something that is useful to the people who watch it... it's not useful to me.toni morrison
Si tengo la fortuna de que con tu alma mi dolor se integre, te dire entre melanco lico y alegre las singulares cosas de la luna. If I am fortunate enough for your soul to mix with my sorrow, I will tell you, half with melancholy, half with gladness, Unique things about the moon.
Now the last hookah has gone out, and the most restless of our servants has turned in. The roof of the cabin is strewed with bodies anything but fragrant, indeed, we cannot help pitying the melancholy fate of poor Morpheus, who is traditionally supposed to encircle such sleepers with his soft arms. Could you believe it possible that through such a night as this they choose to sleep under those wadded cotton coverlets, and dread not instantaneous asphixiation?sir richard francis burton
Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweep The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep! Though boundless snows the withered heath deform, And the dim sun scarce wanders through the storm, Yet shall the smile of social love repay, With mental light, the melancholy day! And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er, The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore, How bright the fagots in his little hall Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall!thomas campbell
Her melancholy seems to be fortified With a strange disdain.john webster
The melancholy days are come, the saddest of the year,Of wailing winds, and naked woods, and meadows brown and sere.william cullen bryant
How melancholy a thing is success. Whilst failure inspirits a man, attainment reads the sad prosy lesson that all our glories "Are shadows, not substantial things." Truly said the sayer, "disappointment is the salt of life" a salutary bitter which strengthens the mind for fresh exertion, and gives a double value to the prize.sir richard francis burton
It is a melancholy but an undoubted fact, that, even in the most thriving countries, part of the population annually dies of mere want. Not that all who perish from want absolutely die of hunger; though this calamity is of more frequent occurrence than is generally supposed.jean-baptiste say
Beheld the duteous son, the sire decayed,The modest matron, and the blushing maid,Forc'd from their homes, a melancholy train,To traverse climes beyond the Western main.Oliver Goldsmith

"Most musical, most melancholy" bird! A melancholy bird! Oh! idle thought! In nature there is nothing melancholy.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Fish not, with this melancholy bait, For this fool-gudgeon, this opinion.william shakespeare
The melancholy days have come, the saddest of the year. Of wailing winds, and naked woods, and meadows brown and sear.william cullen bryant
Solitude and melancholy, that is a woman's life.
And that dismal cry rose slowly And sank slowly through the air, Full of spirit's melancholy And eternity's despair; And they heard the words it said, "Pan is dead! great Pan is dead! Pan, Pan is dead!"
Gentlemen, the melancholy event of yesterday reads to us an awful lesson against being too much troubled about any of the objects of ordinary ambition. The worthy gentleman, who has been snatched from us at the moment of the election, and in the middle of contest, whilst his desires were as warm, and his hopes as eager as ours, has feelingly told us, what shadows we are, and what shadows we pursue.Edmund Burke
The melancholy thing in our public life is the insane desire to get higher.rutherford b. hayes
Sweet bird that shunn'st the noise of folly, Most musical, most melancholy! Thee, chauntress, oft, the woods among, I woo, to hear thy even-song.john milton
Panic in Wall Street, brokers feeling melancholy.
The melancholy ghosts of dead renown, Whispering faint echoes of the world's applause.Edward Young
Here rest his head upon the lap of earth Ayouth to fortune and to fame unknown. Fair Science frowned not on his humble birth, And melancholy marked him for her own.thomas gray
