Send home my long strayed eyes to me, Which (Oh) too long have dwelt on thee.More John Donne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Chastity is not chastity in an old man, but a disability to be unchaste.More John Donne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Be your own palace, or the world is your jail.More John Donne quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.More John Donne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
