There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.
Brevity is the soul of wit.
Yet fill my glass: give me one kiss:
My own sweet Alice, we must die.
There's somewhat in this world amiss
Shall be unriddled by and by.
There's somewhat flows to us in life,
But more is taken quite away.
Pray, Alice, pray, my darling wife,
That we may die the self-same day.
Alfred (Lord) Tennyson
There is measure in all things.
Mens sana in corpore sano.
Age steals away all things, even the mind.
He was as fresh as is the month of May.
Better shun the bait than struggle in the snare.
Women of quality are so civil, you can hardly distinguish love from good breeding.
A little disdain is not amiss; a little scorn is alluring.
Some fell by laudanum, and some by steel, and death in ambush lay in every pill.
Sir Samuel Garth
How happy I am, if you say this from your heart! For I love thee so, that I could sooner bear to see thee hang'd than in the Arms of another.
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.
Let those love now who never loved before;
Let those who always loved, now love the more.
Biography is one of the new terrors of death.
Once harm has been done, even a fool understands it.
The Iliad Homer
No light, but rather darkness visible.
And he that strives to touch the stars, Oft stumbles at a straw.
