Today's Quotes of the Day:

John Keats

A thing of beauty is a joy forever.  ~John Keats


What is one man's meat is another man's rank poison.  ~Lucretius

Why, then the world's mine oyster, which I with sword will open.  ~William Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.  ~Thomas Haynes Bayly, Isle of Beauty

LOGIC

Today's Quote of the Day:

from Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Farewell, farewell ! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest !
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small ;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.

The Mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,
Is gone : and now the Wedding-Guest
Turned from the bridegroom's door.

He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn :
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.

Sonnet #112

Your love and pity doth the impression fill

Which vulgar scandal stamp'd upon my brow;

For what care I who calls me well or ill,

So you o'er-green my bad, my good allow?

You are my all the world, and I must strive

To know my shames and praises from your tongue:

None else to me, nor I to none alive,

That my steel'd sense or changes right or wrong.

In so profound abysm I throw all care

Of others' voices, that my adder's sense

To critic and to flatterer stopped are.

Mark how with my neglect I do dispense:

You are so strongly in my purpose bred

That all the world besides methinks are dead.
