John Masefield

English poet and novelist
Once in a century a man may be ruined or made insufferable by praise. But surely once in a minute something generous dies for want of it.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God dropped a spark down into everyone, And if we find and fan it to a blaze, It'll spring up and glow, like--like the sun, And light the wandering out of stony ways.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Since the printing press came into being, poetry has ceased to be the delight of the whole community of man; it has become the amusement and delight of the few.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Life, a beauty chased by tragic laughter.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man cannot call the brimming instant back;
Time's an affair of instants spun to days;
If man must make an instant gold, or black,
Let him, he may; but Time must go his ways.
Life may be duller for an instant's blaze.
Life's an affair of instants spun to years,
Instants are only cause of all these tears.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
