Daffodils, That come before the swallow dares, and take The winds of March with beauty.
He was not only the most brilliant strategist of all our generals, but he had a good political sense. A man of that quality was too difficult for Hitler to swallow for long. At conferences Manstein often differed from Hitler, in front of others, and would go so far as to declare that some of the ideas which Hitler put forward were nonsense.erich von manstein
Whether a man goes down with a law bullet in a vital part or is wearied out as is the fish before being landed, where he may gasp his life out; whether he dies with one convulsion after a swallow of prussic acid or dreamily passes away in the solace of an opium overdraught, is perhaps no matter in the end. In the processes there is a vast difference, but the tombstones the reports of that Court which has the last say read very much alike. The figure is, perhaps, not a bad one.
One swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy.Aristotle
O swallow, swallow, flying, flying South, Fly to her, and fall upon her gilded eaves, And tell her, tell her, what I tell to thee. O tell her, swallow, thou that knowest each, That bright and fierce and fickle is the South, And dark and true and tender is the North.Tennyson
Gradually I came to realize that people will more readily swallow lies than truth, as if the taste of lies was homey, appetizing: a habit.
God was feeling sardonic the day He created the Universe. So it's rather up to at least one man every few centuries to pop up and come just as close to making him swallow his laughter as possible.l. ron hubbard
All you have to do is anesthetize the masses by telling them they’re an elite, that they’ve got a mission, that they’re making history, that they’re fulfilling their destiny and fighting for a better world — and they swallow it like lambs — even when a guttersnipe says it.
One swallow does not make a summer.
As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
Schemes within schemes. The Great Serpent is a good sign for you Aes Sedai, I think. Someday you may swallow yourselves by accident.robert jordan
One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of a March thaw, is the spring.aldo leopold
But, as old Swedish legends say, Of all the birds upon that day, The swallow felt the deepest grief, And longed to give her Lord relief, And chirped when any near would come, "Hugswala swala swal honom!" Meaning, as they who tell it deem, Oh, cool, oh, cool and comfort Him!charles godfrey leland
The swallow is come! The swallow is come! O, fair are the seasons, and light Are the days that she brings, With her dusky wings, And her bosom snowy white!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It's surely summer, for there's a swallow: Come one swallow, his mate will follow, The bird rare quicken and wheel and thicken.
There goes the swallow, Could we but follow! Hasty swallow, stay, Point us out the way; Look back swallow, turn back swallow, stop swallow.
Find the cost of freedom, buried in the ground Mother earth will swallow you Lay your body down
Look for me when the sun-bright swallow Sings upon the birch bough high.
I will not avoid doing what I think is right, though it should draw on me the whole artillery that falsehood and malice can invent, or the credulity a deluded population can swallow.
Those who swallow the property of the orphans unjustly, they swallow only fire into their bellies. And they will burn in blazing fire.
O Proserpina, For the flowers now, that, frighted, thou let’st fall From Dis’s waggon! Daffodils, That come before the swallow dares, and take The winds of March with beauty; violets dim, But sweeter than the lids of Juno’s eyes, Or Cytherea’s breath; pale primroses, That die unmarried, ere they can behold Bright Phœbus in his strength, a malady Most incident to maids; bold oxlips, and The crown-imperial; lilies of all kinds, The flower-de-luce being one!
