1 Sourced Quote
Your beauty was the first that won the place,
And scaled the walls of my undaunted heart,
Which, captive now, pines in a caitive case,
Unkindly met with rigour for desert;–
Yet not the less your servant shall abide,
In spite of rude repulse or silent pride.
Quote of the day
I hate myself because I am not beautiful. I hate myself because I am fat.
William Fowler was a Scottish poet, writer, courtier, and translator, active from 1581 to 1612.
