A Quote by Hester Lynch Piozzi on life, love, and pain

The tree of deepest root is found Least willing still to quit the ground: 'T was therefore said by ancient sages, That love of life increased with years So much, that in our latter stages, When pain grows sharp and sickness rages, The greatest love of life appears.

Hester Lynch Piozzi (1741 - 1821)
