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 people say England, they sometimes mean Great Britain, sometimes the United Kingdom, sometimes the British Isles, - but never England.
