Edward Fairfax Quotes
6 Sourced Quotes
The golden sun rose from the silver wave,
And with his beams enamel'd every green.
Aurora bright her crystal gates unbarred,
And bridegroom-like forth stept the glorious sun.
Remembrance is the life of grief; his grave,
The throne of Cupid had an easy stair,
His bark is fit to sail with every wind,
The breach he makes no wisdom can repair.
Patience, a praise; forbearance is a treasure;
Sufferance, an angel is; a monster, rage.
The rosy-fingered morn with gladsome ray
Rose to her task from old Tithonus' lap.
Quote of the day
When Fortune smiles, I smile to think How quickly she will frown.
