Facts are stubborn things.
One science only will one genius fit,
So vast is art, so narrow human wit.
Wind puffs up empty bladders; opinion, fools.
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold
as a lion.
Of joys departed
Not to return, how painful the remembrance.
Death rides on every passing breeze,
He lurks in every flower.
Nae man can tether time nor tide.
The best manners are stained by haughtiness.
So comes a reck'ning when the banquet's o'er,
The dreadful reckn'ning, and men smile no more.
If you reveal your secrets to the wind you should not blame the
wind for revealing them to the trees.
What boots it on the lineal tree to trace
Through many a branch the founders of our race.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever;
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
A man suffers death himself as often as he loses those dear to
A pleasant traveling companion helps us on our journey as much as
The word "impossible" is not in my dictionary.
