A Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne on beginning, death, endurance, gifts, grief, heaven, hell, life, love, madness, pain, pleasure, strength, tears, and time

Before the beginning of years There came to the making of man Time with a gift of tears, Grief with a glass that ran, Pleasure with pain for leaven, Summer with flowers that fell, Remembrance fallen from heaven, And Madness risen from hell, Strength without hands to smite, Love that endures for a breath; Night, the shadow of light, And Life, the shadow of death.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on aim, community, knowledge, life, motives, people, pleasure, schools, success, value, and work

One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community.
