A Quote by Joe Darion on bravery, chastity, courage, dreams, heart, hell, impossibility, lies, love, peace, purity, questions, rest, sorrow, and world

To dream the impossible dream To fight the unbeatable foe To bear with unbearable sorrow To run where the brave dare not go To right the unrightable wrong To love pure and chaste from afar To try when your arms are too weary To reach the unreachable star This is my quest, to follow the star No matter how hopeless, no matter how far To fight for the right without question or pause To be willing to pass into hell for a heavenly cause And know if I'll only be true to the glorious quest That my heart lies peaceful and calm When I'm laid to my rest And the world will be better for this That one man scorned and covered in scars Still strove with his last ounce of courage To reach the unreachable star This is my quest, to follow the star No matter how hopeless, no matter how far To fight for the right without question or pause And to dream the impossible dream.

A Quote by unknown on death, hell, love, and sorrow

May the grass grow at your door and the fox build his nest on your hearthstone. May the light fade from your eyes, so you never see what you love. May your own blood rise against you, and the sweetest drink you take be the bitterest cup of sorrow. May you die without benefit of clergy; May there be none to shed a tear at your grave, and may the hearthstone of hell be your best bed forever.

A Quote by unknown on blessings, constitution, foolishness, god, inspiration, liberty, nations, obedience, repentance, sorrow, survival, and trust

To trust in the arm of flesh is foolishness; to suppose that we are self-sufficient is naive. This nation will survive and prosper only as God permits it to do so, and his permission rests upon our obedience to him and his gospel. He brought forth this nation. He gave us our liberty. He inspired our federal constitution. But it is for us to preserve these priceless blessings by our repentance and obedience to God. Our sins and haughty attitudes can only bring us sorrow.

A Quote by David Mack on dreams, faith, feeling, fortune, heart, sorrow, thinking, and wishes

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you will lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbows will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're feeling small
Alone in the night you whisper
Thinking no one can hear you at all
You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you
Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know, tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true

A dream is a wish your heart makes...

A dream is a wish your heart makes...

You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you
Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know, tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true

No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true

A Quote by Umberto Eco on harmony, hell, insanity, laughter, love, opposites, paradise, and sorrow

The pleasures of love are pains that become desirable, where sweetness and torment blend, and so love is voluntary insanity, infernal paradise, and celestial hell - in short, harmony of opposite yearnings, sorrowful laughter, soft diamond.

Umberto Eco (1932 -)

A Quote by Thomas Gray on bliss, destruction, fate, happiness, ignorance, men, pain, paradise, sorrow, and thought

To each his suff'rings; all are men, Condemn'd alike to groan,- The tender for another's pain, Th' unfeeling for his own. Yet ah! why should they know their fate, Since sorrow never comes too late, And happiness too swiftly flies? Thought would destroy their paradise. No more; where ignorance is bliss, 'T is folly to be wise.

Thomas Gray (1716 - 1771)

A Quote by Thomas Dekker on day, fortune, love, money, and sorrow

Cast away care, he that loves sorrow Lengthens not a day, nor can buy tomorrow; Money is trash, and he that will spend it, Let him drink merrily, fortune will send it.
