Robert Southey

English poet
If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeams -- the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn.More Robert Southey quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not for man to rest in absolute contentment. He is born to hopes and aspirations as the sparks fly upward, unless he has brutalized his nature and quenched the spirit of immortality which is his portion.More Robert Southey quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our knowledge, is our power, and God our strength.More Robert Southey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Little, indeed, does it concern us in this our mortal stage, to inquire whence the spirit hath come; but of what infinite concern is the consideration whither it is going. Surely such consideration demands the study of a life.More Robert Southey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I can remember, with unsteady feet,
Tottering from room to room, and finding pleasure
In flowers, and toys, and sweetmeats, things which long
Have lost their power to please; which when I see them,
Raise only now a melancholy wish
I were the little trifler once again,
Who could be pleas'd so lightly.More Robert Southey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
