To evoke posterity Is to weep on your own grave, Ventriloquizing for the unborn.
We bury love, Forgetfulness grows over it like grass; That is a thing to weep for, not the dead.alexander smith
Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign... you must weep that your own government, at present, seems blind to this truth.
Straight is the way to Acheron, Whether the spirit's race is run From Athens or from Meröe: weep not, far from home to die; The wind doth blow in every sky That wafts us to that doleful sea.
I wrote what I did because as a woman, as a mother I was oppressed and broken-hearted, with the sorrows and injustice I saw, because as a Christian I felt the dishonor to Christianity — because as a lover of my country I trembled at the coming day of wrath.It is no merit in the sorrowful that they weep, or to the oppressed and smothering that they gasp and struggle, not to me, that I must speak for the oppressed — who cannot speak for themselves.harriet beecher stowe
weep not that the world changes. Did it keep a stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.william cullen bryant
A choir of angels glorified the hour, the vault of heaven was dissolved in fire. "Father, why hast Thou forsaken me? Mother, I beg you, do not weep for me..."anna akhmatova
Thrice he assay'd, and, thrice in spite of scorn, Tears, such as angels weep, burst forth.john milton
weep no more, nor sigh, nor groan, Sorrow calls no time that's gone; Violets plucked, the sweetest rain Makes not fresh nor grow again.
weep no more, nor sigh, nor groan, Sorrow calls no time that's gone: Violets plucked the sweetest rain Makes not fresh nor grow again.John Fletcher
The woods decay, the woods decayand fall, The vapours weep their burthen to the ground, Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath, And after manya summer dies the swan. Me only cruel immortality Consumes: I wither slowly in thine arms, Here at the quiet limit of the world.Tennyson
By the waters of Babylon we sit down and weep, when we think of thee,OAmerica!
Labor, like Israel, has many sorrows. Its women weep for their fallen and they lament for the future of the children of the race. It ill behooves one who has supped at labor's table and who has been sheltered in labor's house to curse with equal fervor and fine impartiality both labor and its adversaries when they become locked in deadly embrace.john l. lewis
There is a shy client who uses invisible ink on Nagiko's body to hide his obvious talent. The woman attempts to develop the invisible ink by bathing in warm water, by standing as close as she dare to a hot fire, by washing her body in the juice of onion-skins until the onions make her weep and her tears prove to be the necessary solvent to reveal the writing.Peter Greenaway
Pray, pray, thou who also weepest, And the drops will slacken so; weep, weep and the watch thou keepest, With a quicker count will go. Think, the shadow on the dial For the nature most undone, Marks the passing of the trial, Proves the presence of the sun.Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Tell me, ye wingèd winds That round my pathway roar, Know ye not some spot Where mortals weep no more?charles mackay
The dying boy said: " Father, don't you weep for me; when I get to heaven I will go straight to Jesus and tell Him that ever since I can remember you have tried to lead me to Him." I would rather have my children say that of me after I am gone; or if they die before me, I would rather they should take that message to the Master than to have a monument over me reaching to the skies.
Christ saw much in this world to weep over, and much to pray over: but he saw nothing in it to look upon with contempt.
I am a soldier and unapt to weep Or to exclaim on fortune's fickleness.william shakespeare
