The lapse of ages changes all things --time, language, the earth, the bounds of the sea, the stars of the sky, and every thing "about, around, and underneath" man, except man himself.

Seek roses in December, ice in June; Hope constancy in wind, or corn in chaff; Believe a woman or an epitaph, Or any other thing that 's false, before You trust in critics.

A Quote by George Gordon, Lord Byron on belief, constancy, hope, trust, and women

As soon Seek roses in December-ice in June; Hope constancy in wind, or corn in chaff; Believe a woman or an epitaph, Or an other thing that's false, before You trust in critics, who themselves are sore.

A Quote by George Gordon, Lord Byron on automobiles, dance, joy, pleasure, sleep, and youth

But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell! Did ye not hear it?-No! 't was but the wind, Or the car rattling o'er the stony street. On with the dance! let joy be unconfined; No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.
