Showing: 1 - 10 Robert Burns Quotes of 16
O wad some Power the giftie gie us To see oursels as ithers see us! It wad frae monie a blunder free us, An foolish notion.
O wad some power the giftie gie us, To see ourselves as others see us!
Pleasures are like poppies spread: You seize the flow'r, its bloom is shed.
Nature's mighty law is change.
The social, friendly, honest man, Whate'er he be, Tis he fulfils great Nature s plan, And none but he!
Man's inhumanity to man Makes countless thousands mourn.
Morality, thou deadly bane, Thy tens o' thousands thou hast slain! Vain is his hope, whose stay an' trust is In moral mercy, truth, and justice!
Chords that vibrate sweetest pleasure Thrill the deepest notes of woe.
Ambition is a meteor-gleam; Fame a restless airy dream; Pleasures, insects on the wing Round Peace, th' tend rest flow'r of spring.
I pick my favorite quotations and store them in my mind as ready armour, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence.
