There written all Black as the damning drops that fall From the denouncing Angel's pen, Ere Mercy weeps them out again.
Les larmes d'un inconnunous e meuvent me" me avant que nous sachions le sujet qui le fait pleurer. The tears of someone we do not know move us even before we know the reason why he weeps.Jean-Baptiste Du Bos
The difference between a great soul and an ordinary man is this: the latter weeps while leaving this body, whereas the former laughs. Death seems to him a mere play.sarada devi
AT ABOUT THIS POINT the weak-hearted reader usually sits down in the road, removes his shoes and weeps that he 'is a bad linguist' or that he or she can't possibly learn all those languages. One has to divide the readers who want to be experts from those who do not, and divide, as it were, those who want to see the world from those who merely want to know WHAT PART OF IT THEY LIVE IN.ezra pound
And the war rages on in a land called somewhereAnd Generals order their men to killAnd to fight for a cause they've long ago forgottenWhile a little cloud weeps on the side of a hill.paul simon
I have laid sorrow to sleep;Love sleeps.She who oft made me weepNow weeps.arthur symons
He weeps! the falling drop puts out the sun; He sighs! the sigh earth's deep foundation shakes. If in His love so terrible, what then His wrath inflamed?Edward Young
Hush, call no echo up in further proof Of desolation! there's a voice within That weeps . . . as thou must sing . . . alone, aloof.
Goethe said that the worst thing in art is technical facility accompanied by triteness. Many an artist, like God, has never needed to think twice about anything. His works are the mad scene from Giselle , on ice skates: he weeps, pulls out his hair holding his wrists like Lifar and tells you what Life is, all at a gliding forty miles an hour.Randall Jarrell
Slow, slow, fresh fount, keep time with my salt tears: Yet, slower, yet; O faintly, gentle springs: List to the heavy part the music bears, Woe weeps out her division, when she sings. Droop herbs, and flowers, Fall grief in showers, Our beauties are not ours; O, I could still, Like melting snow upon some craggy hill, Drop, drop, drop, drop, Since nature's pride is now, a withered daffodil.Ben Jonson
Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be.william hazlitt
There written all Black as the damning drops that fall From the denouncing Angel's pen Ere Mercy weeps them out again.thomas moore
Man is the animal who weeps and laughs and writes . If the first Prometheus brought fire from heaven in a fennel-stalk, the last will take it back in a book .
The difference between a great soul and an ordinary man is this: the latter weeps while leaving this body, whereas the former laughs. Death seems to him a mere play.
There has fallen a splendid tear From the passion-flower at the gate. She is coming, my dove, my dear; She is coming, my life, my fate; The red rose cries, "She is near, she is near;" And the white rose weeps, "She is late;" The larkspur listens, "I hear, I hear;" And the lily whispers, "I wait."Alfred Tennyson
He's somewhat lewd; but a well-meaning mind; weeps much; fights little; but is wond'rous kind.john dryden
But she is vanish'd to her shady home Under the deep, inscrutable; and there weeps in a midnight made of her own hair.thomas hood
