A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on anguish, danger, death, good, guilt, love, shame, sharing, and soul

But if you ever come to a road where danger; Or guilt or anguish or shame's to share. Be good to the lad who loves you true, And the soul that was born to die for you; And whistle and I'll be there.

Happy bridegroom, Hesper brings All desired and timely things. All whom morning sends to roam, Hesper loves to lead them home. Home return who him behold, Child to mother, sheep to fold, Bird to nest from wandering wide: Happy bridegroom, seek your bride.

Oh, when I was in love with you, Then I was clean and brave And miles around the wonder grew How well I did behave. And now the fancy passes by, And nothing will remain, And miles around they'll say that I Am quite myself again.

A Quote by Adlai Ewing Stevenson on action, age, earth, emotion, faith, knowledge, love, men, people, and words

What a man knows at 50 that he did not know at 20 is, for the most part, incommunicable. The knowledge he has acquired with age is not the knowledge of formulas, or forms of words, but of people, places, actions - a knowledge gained not by words but by touch, sight, sound, victories, failures, sleeplessness, devotion, love - the human experiences and emotions of this earth and of oneself and other men; and perhaps, too, a little faith, a little reverence for things one cannot see.

Adlai Stevenson (1900 - 1965)
