Walter Savage Landor

English poetry writer
A smile is ever the most bright and beautiful with a tear upon it. What is the dawn without the dew? The tear is rendered by the smile precious above the smile itself.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Belief in the future life is the appetite of reason.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Tyrants never perish from tyranny, but always from folly,-when their fantasies have built up a palace for which the earth has no foundation.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Many love music but for music's sake, Many because her touches can awake Thoughts that repose within the breast half-dead, And rise to follow where she loves to lead. What various feelings come from days gone by! What tears from far-off sources dim the eye! Few, when light fingers with sweet voices play, And melodies swell, pause, and melt away, Mind how at every touch, at every tone, A spark of life hath glistened and hath gone.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is a gravity which is not austere nor captious, which belongs not to melancholy nor dwells in contraction of heart: but arises from tenderness and hangs upon reflection.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
