A Quote by Andrew Marvell on garden and wilderness

I have a garden of my own, But so with roses overgrown, And lilies, that you would it guess to be a little wilderness.

A Quote by Andrew Marvell on garden, happiness, kindness, mind, pleasure, and thought

Meanwhile the mind, from pleasure less, Withdraws into its happiness; The mind, that ocean where each kind Does straight its own resemblance find; Yet it creates, transcending these, Far other worlds, and other seas; Annihilating all that's made To a green thought in a green glade . . . Such was that happy garden-state, . . .

A Quote by Andrew Marvell on curiosity, life, and wine

What wond'rous life is this I lead! Ripe apples drop about my head; The luscious clusters of the vine Upon my mouth do crush their wine; The nectarine and curious peach, Into my hands themselves do reach; Stumbling on melons, as I pass, Insnar'd with flow'rs, I fall on grass.

Ye country comets, that portend No war, nor prince's funeral, Shining unto no higher end Than to presage the grasses fall. . . .

As lines, so loves oblique, may well Themselves in every angle greet; But ours, so truly parallel, Though infinite, can never meet.
