Come, see what pleasures in our plains abound:
The woods, the fountains, and the flow'ry ground:
As you are beauteous, were you half so true,
Here could I live, and love, and die with only you.
Let us die even as we rush into the midst of the battle. The only safe course for the defeated is to expect no safety.
Is it then so very wretched a thing to die?
Your honor, name, and praise shall never die.
Nerved by strong courage to defy
The worst, and gain his end or die.
"Must I die," she said,
"And unreveng'd? 'tis doubly to be dead!
Yet even this death with pleasure I receive:
On any terms, 'tis better than to live."
Arms! arms! my friends, with speed my arms supply,
'Tis our last hour, and summons us to die;
My arms!—in vain you hold me,—let me go—
Give, give me back this moment to the foe.
'Tis well—we will not tamely perish all,
But die revenged, and triumph in our fall.
Now, prostrate by an unmeant wound,
In death he welters on the ground,
And gazing on Italian skies
Of his loved Argos dreams, and dies.
Quote of the day
Truth does not sit in a cave and hide like a lie. It wanders around proudly and roars loudly like a lion.
