A Quote by Eliza Roxey Snow

If "Rights" are right when they are rightly gained, "Rights" must be wrong when wrongfully obtained. The putting forth a hand to take the prize, Before we fairly win it, is unwise.

A Quote by Eliza Roxey Snow on autobiography, change, children, facts, love, people, reflection, strength, and time

Autobiography of Lorenzo Snow Our former loved associates Have mostly passed away; While those we knew as children Are crowned with locks of gray. We saw Time's varied traces Were deep on every hand - Indeed, upon the people, More marked than on the land. The bands that once with firmness Could grasp the axe and blade, Now move with trembling motion, By strength of nerve decayed. The change in form and feature And furrows on the cheek Of Time's increasing volume, In plain, round numbers speak. And thus, as in a mirror's Reflection, we were told, With stereotyped impressions, The fact of growing old.
