Old gold has a civilizing virtue which new gold must grow old to be capable of secreting.More James Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Earth gets its price for what Earth gives us; The beggar is taxed for a corner to die in, The priest hath his fee who comes and shrives us, We bargain for the graves we lie in; Each ounce of dross costs its ounce of gold... 'T is heaven alone that is given away, 'T is only God may be had for the asking; There is no price set on the lavish summer, And June may be had by the poorest comer.More James Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is only the intellect that can be thoroughly and hideously wicked. It can forget everything in the attainment of its ends. The heart recoils; in its retired some drops of childhood's dew still linger, defying manhood's fiery noon.More James Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the privilege of genius that life never grows common place, as it does for the rest of us.More James Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nursed by stern men with empires in their brains.More James Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
