Robert Burns

Robert Burns

a Scottish poet
Cursed be the man, the poorest wretch in life,
The crouching vassal, to the tyrant wife,
Who has no will but by her high permission;
Who has not sixpence but in her possession;
Who must to her his dear friend's secret tell;
Who dreads a curtain lecture worse than hell.
Were such the wife had fallen to my part,
I'd break her spirit or I'd break her heart.More Robert Burns quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But little Mouse, you are not alone, In proving foresight may be vain: The best laid schemes of mice and men Go often askew, And leave us nothing but grief and pain, For promised joy! Still you are blest, compared with me!More Robert Burns quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Oh, my luve is like a red, red rose, That is newly sprung in June; Oh, my luve is like the melodie That is sweetly played in tune.More Robert Burns quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ah, gentle dames! it gars me greet To think how monie counsels sweet, How monie lengthened sage advices, The husband frae the wife despises.More Robert Burns quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
