The SUN has a SINKING spell every night, but it RISES again all right the next morning.
I SAW ETERNITY the OTHER NIGHT Like a great RING of pure and endless LIFE, All calm, as it was bright; And round beneath is, TIME, in hours, days, and years, Driven by the spheres, Like a vast shadow moved, in which the world And all her train were hurl'd; The doting Lover on his quaintest strain Did there complain; Near him, his bite, his fancy, and his flights, Wit's sour delights, With gloves and knots, the silly snares of pleasure Yet his dear treasure, All scatter`d lay, while he his eyes did pour Upon a flower.
Qu'est-ce qu'une grande vie? Sinon une penseé de la jounesse executée par l'âge mûr.What is a GREAT LIFE? Unless it be an idea that youth achieves in MATURITY.
Felix, qui potisit rerum cognoscere causus, Quique metus omnes, et inexorabile fatum Subjevit pedibus, strepitumque deheraontis avari.Happy, who had the skill to UNDERSTAND Nature's hid causes, and beneath his feet All terrors cast, and death's relentless doom, And the loud roar of greedy Acheron.
MAN is a STRANGER to his own RESEARCH; He knows not whence he comes, nor whither goes Tormented atoms in a bed of mud, Devoured by DEATH, a mockery of fate; But thinking atoms, whose far-seeing eyes, Guided by THOUGHTS, have measured the faint stars, Our BEING MINGLES with the INFINITE; OURSELVES we NEVER SEE, or COME to KNOW.
