Creation smiles in various beauty gay While day to night, and night succeeds day
They were privileged children?they would always expect to be greeted with smiles.Anita Brookner
Where the quiet-coloured end of evening smiles, Miles and miles.Robert Browning
The real index of this country is the smiles of the people, not the economic index.
Life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating.O Henry pseudonym of William Sydney Porter
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,Old Time is still a-flying,And this same flower that smiles todayTomorrow will be dying.The glorious Lamp of Heaven, the Sun,The higher he's a-gettingThe sooner will his race be run,And nearer he's to setting.Robert Herrick
It is said that the Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving picaninnies; and one can imagine that Blair, twice victor abroad but enmired at home, is similarly seduced by foreign politeness. They say he is shortly off to the Congo. No doubt the AK47s will fall silent, and the pangas will stop their hacking of human flesh, and the tribal warriors will all break out in Watermelon smiles to see the big white chief touch down in his big white British taxpayer-funded bird.Boris Johnson
Thus attired, with smiles assumed at the door, the young ladies entered the drawing-room in the full fervour of sisterly animosity.Robert Smith Surtees
Golden slumbers kiss your eyes, smiles awake you when you rise.thomas dekker
The man resolved, and steady to his trust, Inflexible to ill, and obstinately just, May the rude rabble's insolence despise, Their senseless clamours and tumultuous cries; The tyrant's fierceness he beguiles, And the stern brow, and the harsh voice defies, And with superior greatness smiles.joseph addison
Our civilization, bequeathed to us by fierce adventurers, eaters of meat and hunters, is so full of hurry and combat, so busy about many things which perhaps are of no importance, that it cannot but see something feeble in a civilization which smiles as it refuses to make the battlefield the test of excellence.james joyce
The nourishment of our souls comes from the smiles of others.steve maraboli
Man, whose heaven-erected face The smiles of love adorn, Man's inhumanity to man Makes countless thousands mourn!Robert Burns
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap.
His home! the Western giant smiles, And turns the spotty globe to find it; This little speck the British Isles? 'Tis but a freckle, never mind it.
I shall chide you no more. You and I shall smile together, so long as our two forms appear different in the maya- dream of God . Finally we shall merge as one in the Cosmic Beloved; our smiles shall be His smile, our unified song of joy vibrating throughout eternity to be broadcast to God -tuned souls .
But here more slow, where all are slaves to gold, Where looks are merchandise, and smiles are sold.samuel johnson
Books are delightful when prosperity happily smiles; when adversity threatens, they are inseparable comforters. They give strength to human compacts, nor are grave opinions brought forward without books. Arts and sciences, the benefits of which no mind can calculate, depend upon books.
You may seek it with thimbles and seek it with care; You may hunt it with forks and hope; You may threaten its life with a railway-share; You may charm it with smiles and soap.
When Alfred's word was ended Stood firm that feeble line, Each in his place with club or spear, And fury deeper than deep fear, And smiles as sour as brine.
Gather ye Rose-buds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying; And this same flower that smiles to-day, To-morrow will be dying.Robert Herrick
But I'll report it Where senators shall mingle tears with smiles.william shakespeare
You may seek it with thimbles and seek it with care; You may hunt it with forks and hope; You may threaten its life with a railway-share; You may charm it with smiles and soap ("That's exactly the method," the Bellman bold In a hasty parenthesis cried, "That's exactly the way I have always been told That the capture of Snarks should be tried!") "'But oh, beamish nephew, beware of the day, If your Snark be a Boojum! For then You will softly and suddenly vanish away, And never be met with again!'
Now it is not good for the Christian's health To hustle the Aryan brown, For the Christian riles and the Aryan smiles, and it weareth the Christian down. And the end of the fight is a tombstone white With the name of the late deceased And the epitaph drear: "A fool lies here Who tried to hustle the East."rudyard kipling
Golden slumbers kiss your eyes, smiles awake you when you rise; Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry, And I will sing a lullaby, Rock them, rock them, lullaby.thomas dekker
Utilitarianism had found [in Samuel smiles’ Self-Help ] its portrait gallery of heroes, inscribed with a vigorous exhortation to all men to strive in their image; this philistine romanticism established the bourgeois hero-prototype the penniless office-boy who works his way to economic fortune and this wins his way into the mercantile plutocracy.john carroll
She waits for me; my lady Earth, smiles and waits and sighs; I'll say her nay, and hide away, Then take her by surprise.mary mapes dodge
