Alphonse Lamartine

French poet and statesman deyatel.
And when night, guiding her bright train of stars, Throws o'er the sleeping world her gloomy veil, Lonely amidst the desert and the darkness, Musing upon the night's calm majesty; Wrapt up in quietness, with shade and silence, My soul more closely worshippeth Thy presence; With an internal day I feel enlighten'd, And hear a voice, which biddeth me to hope.More Alphonse Lamartine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Exquisite beauty resides rather in the female form than face, where it is also more lasting.More Alphonse Lamartine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man, it seems, is not able to bear the languid rest on Nature's bosom, and when the trumpet sounds the signal of danger, he hastens to join his comrades, no matter what the cause that calls him to arms. He rushes into the thickest of the fight, and amid the uproar of the battle regains confidence in himself and his powers.More Alphonse Lamartine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
After his blood, that which a man can next give out of himself is a tear.More Alphonse Lamartine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Too much I've seen, and felt, and lov'd in life, Living I come to seek Lethaean calm; Let me, fair scenes! forget all worldly strife, Oblivion solely is my bosom's balm.More Alphonse Lamartine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
