Edna St. Vincent Millay Quotes
Showing: 11 - 20 Edna St. Vincent Millay Quotes of 52
My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh my friends- It gives a lovely light!
Father, I beg of Thee a little task To dignify my days, 'tis all I ask.
Beauty in all things-no, we cannot hope for that; but some place set apart for it.
Was it for this I uttered prayers, And sobbed and cursed and kicked the stairs, That now, domestic as a plate, I should retire at half-past eight?
Heap not on this mound Roses that she loved so well; Why bewilder her with roses, That she cannot see or smell?
Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.
The heart grows weary after a little Of what it loved for a little while.
Blessed be Death, that cuts in marble What would have sunk to dust!
Oh, children, growing up to be Adventurers into sophistry, Forbear, forbear to be of those That read the rood to learn the rose.
Pity me that the heart is slow to learn What the swift mind beholds at every turn.
