Una derrota peleada vale más que una victoria casual.
If you recognize anyone, it does not mean that you like him.We all, for instance, recognize the honourable Member for Ebbw Vale.Lord Randolph Henry Spencer Churchill
If, after I depart this Vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.h. l. mencken
Skiddaw shews its vast base, and bounding all that part of the Vale, rises gently to a height that sinks the neighboring hills; opens a pleasing front, smooth and verdant, smiling over the country like a gentle generous lord, while the fells of Borrowdale frown on it like a hardened tyrant.
I'll seize the rosebuds in their perfumed bed, The violet knots, like curious mazes spread O'er all the garden, taste the ripened cherry, The warm, firm apple, tipped with coral berry. Then will I visit with a wandering kiss The Vale of lilies and the bower of bliss, And where the beauteous region doth divide Into two milky ways, my lips shall slide Down those smooth alleys, wearing as I go A track for lovers on the printed snow.thomas carew
Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife Their sober wishes never learned to stray; Along the cool sequestered Vale of life They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.thomas gray
Who, of men, can tell That flowers would bloom, or that green fruit would swell To melting pulp, that fish would have bright mail, The earth its dower of river, wood, and Vale, The meadows runnels, runnels pebble-stones, The seed its harvest, or the lute its tones, Tones ravishment, or ravishment its sweet, If human souls did never kiss and greet?john keats
Call the world if you please 'The Vale of soul-making'.john keats
Deep in the shady sadness of a Vale Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn, Far from the fiery noon and eve's one star, Sat gray-haired Saturn, quiet as a stone, Still as the silence round about his lair.john keats
Más Vale ser engañado en el precio que en la mercadería.baltasar gracián
Beyond this Vale of tearsThere is a life above,Unmeasured by the flight of years;And all that life is love.james montgomery
Multas per gentes et multa per aequora vectus Advenio has miseras, frater, ad inferias, Ut te postremo donarem munere mortis Et mutam nequiquam alloquerer cinerem. Quandoquidem fortuna mihi tete abstulit ipsum, Heu miser indigne frater adempte mihi, Nunc tamen interea haec prisco quae more parentum Tradita sunt tristi munere ad inferias, Accipe fraterno multum manantia fletu, Atque in perpetuum, frater, ave atque Vale.
Again she plunges! hark! a second shock Bilges the splitting vessel on the rock; Down on the Vale of death, with dismal cries, The fated victims shuddering cast their eyes In wild despair; while yet another stroke With strong convulsion rends the solid oak: Ah Heaven! behold her crashing ribs divide! She loosens, parts, and spreads in ruin o'er the tide.william falconer
See the wretch that long has tost On the thorny bed of pain, At length repair his vigour lost, And breathe and walk again: The meanest floweret of the Vale, The simplest note that swells the gale, The common sun, the air, the skies, To him are opening paradise.thomas gray
Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife, Their sober wishes never learned to stray; Along the cool sequestered Vale of life They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.thomas gray
Cease, cease, wayward Mortal! I dare not unveil The shadows that float o’er Eternity’s Vale; Nought waits for the good but a spirit of Love, That will hail their blest advent to regions above. For Love, Mortal, gleams through the gloom of my sway, And the shades which surround me fly fast at its ray.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Spirit of BEAUTY, that dost consecrate With thine own hues all thou dost shine upon Of human thought or form, where art thou gone? Why dost thou pass away and leave our state, This dim vast Vale of tears, vacant and desolate? Ask why the sunlight not for ever Weaves rainbows o'er yon mountain-river, Why aught should fail and fade that once is shown, Why fear and dream and death and birth Cast on the daylight of this earth Such gloom, why man has such a scope For love and hate, despondency and hope?Percy Bysshe Shelley
As some tall cliff that lifts its awful form, Swells from the Vale, and midway leaves the storm, Though round its breast the rolling clouds are spread, Eternal sunshine settles on its head.Oliver Goldsmith
The meanest floweret of the Vale, The simplest note that swells the gale, The common sun , the air , the skies , To him are open paradise.thomas gray
Then sought out Envy in her dark abode, Defil'd with ropy gore and clots of blood: Shut from the winds, and from the wholesome skies, In a deep Vale the gloomy dungeon lies, Dismal and cold, where not a beam of light Invades the winter, or disturbs the night. ... She never smiles but when the wretched weep, Nor lulls her malice with a moment's sleep, Restless in spite: while watchful to destroy, She pines and sickens at another's joy; Foe to her self, distressing and distrest, She bears her own tormentor in her breast.ovid
And leaves of that shy plant, (Her flowers were shed) the lily of the Vale, That loves the ground, and from the sun withholds Her pensive beauty; from the breeze her sweets.william wordsworth
Under the dominion of the priests our earth became the ascetic planet; a squalid den careering through space, peopled by discontented and arrogant creatures, who were disgusted with life, abhorred their globe as a Vale of tears, and who in their envy and hatred of beauty and joy did themselves as much harm as possible.
While the wanton Zephyr sings, And in the Vale perfumes his wings.john dyer
Slow let us trace the matchless Vale of Thames; Fair winding up to where the Muses haunt In Twit'nham bowers, and for their Pope implore.james thomson
