Thirsty, weary, dissatisfied in this sultry life, come as you are; come at once; come because you are invited; as you would not do affront to infinite Generosity, come, and drink, and live forever.
I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the battle of life, The hymn of the wounded, the beaten who died overwhelmed in the strife; Not the jubilant song of the victors for whom the resounding acclaim Of nations was lifted in chorus whose brows wore the chaplet of fame, But the hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart, Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.william wetmore story
This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.Abraham Lincoln
While we shall never weary in the defense of freedom, neither shall we ever abandon the pursuit of peace.john f. kennedy
The head must bow, and the back will have to bend, Wherever the darkey may go; A few more days, and the trouble all will end, In the field where the sugar-canes grow. A few more days for to tote the weary load, No matter, 't will never be light; A few more days till we totter on the road: Then my old Kentucky home, good-night!stephen foster
Backward, flow backward, O full tide of years! I am so weary of toil and of tears, Toil without recompense tears all in vain, Take them and give me my childhood again. I have grown weary of dust and decay, weary of flinging my heart's wealth away weary of sowing for others to reap; Rock me to sleep, mother, rock me to sleep.
O Earth, lie heavily upon her eyes; Seal her sweet eyes weary of watching, Earth.
Come, take hands, you are not suchAs this will weary overmuch.Sit we down, and hear rehearseThe marvels of the sweet-souled verseedward andrade
With trembling hand that from Thy table fall,A weary, heavy laden sinner comes,To plead Thy promise and obey Thy call.edward bickersteth
The dusk is heavy with the wine's warm load;Here the long sense of classic measure curesThe spirit weary of its difficult pain;Here the old Bacchic piety endures,Here the sweet legends of the world remain.vita sackville-west
O bed! O bed! delicious bed!That heaven upon earth to the weary head.thomas hood
Dim as the borrowed beams of moon and stars To lonely, weary, wandering travellers Is reason to the soul; and as on high Those rolling fires discover but the sky Not light us here, so reason's glimmering ray Was lent, not to assure our doubtful way, But guide us upward to a better day: And as those nightly tapers disappear When day's bright lord ascends our hemisphere, So pale grows reason at religion's sight, So dies, and so dissolves in supernatural light.john dryden
It must cut up Liberty by the root and poison the Fountain of Publick Security; and who that has an English heart can ever be weary of asserting Liberty?
Helen, thy beauty is to me Like those Nicean barks of yore, That gently, o'er a perfumed sea, The weary, wayworn wanderer bore To his own native shore. On desperate seas long wont to roam, Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face, Thy Naiad airs have brought me home To the glory that was Greece And the grandeur that was Rome.edgar allan poe
Dwelling beside a body of water is tonic for the weary psyche. Sea smells, sea birds, seawrack, sands - alternately cool, warm, moist and dry - a taste of brine and the presence of the rocking, slopping bluegraygreen spit-flecked waters, has the effect of rinsing the emotions, bathing the outlook, bleaching the conscience.roger zelazny
Oh, give Thine own sweet rest to me, That I may speak with soothing power A word in season, as from Thee, To weary ones in needful hour.
In sermon style he bought, And sold, and lied; and salutations made In Scripture terms. He prayed by quantity, And with his repetitions long and loud, All knees were weary.robert pollok
And if by prayer Incessant I could hope to change the will Of Him who all things can, I would not cease To weary Him with my assiduous cries.john milton
I fancy mankind may come, in time, to write all aphoristically, except in narrative; grow weary of preparation, and connection, and illustration, and all those arts by which a big book is made.
I pray the gods will give me some relief And end this weary job. One long full year I've been lying here, on this rooftop, The palace of the sons of Atreus, Resting on my arms, just like a dog . I've come to know the night sky, every star , The powers we see glittering in the sky, Bringing winter and summer to us all, As the constellations rise and sink.
The followers of the false prophet Mahomet make their weary pilgrimages from year to year to that impostor’s tomb. We pity their delusion, we pray for their deliverance; but we admire their devotedness.
