Lord Byron)

Put himself upon his good behavior.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
By all that's good and glorious.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And these vicissitudes come best in youth;
For when they happen at a riper age,
People are apt to blame the Fates, forsooth,
And wonder Providence is not more sage.
Adversity is the first path to truth:
He who hath proved war, storm, or woman's rage,
Whether his winters be eighteen or eighty,
Has won experience which is deem'd so weighty.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The languages, especially the dead,
The sciences, and most of all the abstruse,
The arts, at least all such as could be said
To be the most remote from common use,
In all these he was much and deeply read.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
His speech was a fine sample, on the whole,
Of rhetoric, which the learn'd call "rigmarole."More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The law of heaven and earth is life for life.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The tree of knowledge is not that of life.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Knowledge is not happiness, and science
But an exchange of ignorance for that
Which is another kind of ignorance.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Be thou the rainbow to the storms of life!
The evening beam that smiles the clouds away,
And tints to-morrow with prophetic ray!More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Her eye (I'm very fond of handsome eyes)
Was large and dark, suppressing half its fire
Until she spoke, then through its soft disguise
Flash'd an expression more of pride than ire,
And love than either; and there would arise,
A something in them which was not desire,
But would have been, perhaps, but for the soul,
Which struggled through and chansten'd down the whole.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
With eyes that look'd into the very soul--
. . . .
Bright--and as black and burning as coal.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For florid prose, nor honied lies of rhyme,
Can blazon evil deeds, or consecrate a crime.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The fatal facility of the octosyllabic verse.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Do proper homage to thine idol's eyes;
But no too humbly, or she will despise
Thee and thy suit, though told in moving tropes:
Disguise even tenderness if thou art wise.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Not much he kens, I ween, of woman's breast,
Who thinks that wanton thing is won by sighs.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
'Tis an old lesson; time approves it true,
And those who know it best, deplore it most;
When all is won that all desire to woo,
The paltry prize is hardly worth the cost.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is a tide in the affairs of women
Which, taken at the flood, leads--God knows where.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some are soon bagg'd but some reject three dozen.
'Tis fine to see them scattering refusals
And wild dismay, o'er every angry cousin
(Friends of the party) who begin accusals,
Such as--"Unless Miss (Blank) meant to have chosen
Poor Frederick, why did she accord perusals
To his billets? Why waltz with him? Why, I pray,
Look yes least night, and yet say No to-day?"More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
'Tis enough--
Who listens once will listen twice;
Her heart be sure is not of ice,
And one refusal no rebuff.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I die,--but first I have possess'd,
And come what may, I have been bless'd.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Friendship is Love without his wings!More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In friendship I early was taught to believe;
. . . .
I have found that a friend may profess, yet deceive.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But at sixteen the conscience rarely gnaws
So much, as when we call our old debts in
At sixty years, and draw the accounts of evil,
And find a deuced balance with the devil.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A quiet conscience makes one so serene!
Christians have burnt each other, quite persuaded
That all the Apostles would have done as they did.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Yet still there whispers the small voice within,
Heard through Gain's silence, and o'er Glory's din;
Whatever creed be taught or land be trod,
Man's conscience is the oracle of God.More Lord Byron) [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
