lies

A Quote by William Edmondstoune Aytoun on anger, fashion, god, judgment, lies, and soul

Do not lift him from the bracken, Leave him lying where he fell- Better bier ye cannot fashion: None beseems him half so well As the bare and broken heather, And the hard and trampled sod, Whence his angry soul ascended To the judgment seat of God!

A Quote by William Ellery Channing on action, determination, individuality, lies, energy, virtue, and worth

All virtue lies in individual action, in inward energy, in self determination. There is no moral worth in being swept away by a crowd even toward the best objective.

A Quote by William Cullen Bryant on death, dreams, lies, silence, slavery, and trust

So live, that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan which moves To that mysterious realm where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave Like one that wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.

Though leaves are many, the root is one; Through all the lying days of my youth I swayed my leaves and flowers in the sun Now I may wither into the truth.

Now that my ladder's gone, I must lie down where all the ladders start, In the foul rag-and-bone shop of the heart.

A Quote by William Blake on belief, heaven, lies, life, and soul

This life's dim windows of the soul Distorts the heavens from pole to pole And leads you to believe a lie When you see with, not through, the eye.

A Quote by William Blake on clothes, divinity, joy, lies, soul, truth, and world

A truth that's told with bad intent Beats all the lies you can invent. It is right it should be so; Man was made for Joy and Woe; And when this we rightly know, Thro' the World we safely go, Joy and woe are woven fine, A clothing for the soul divine.
