A glass is good, and a lass is good, And a pipe to smoke in cold weather; The world is good, and the people are good, And we 're all good fellows together.

A Quote by John D. Sedding on belief, day, dreams, fiction, garden, home, paradise, weather, and world

There be delights that will fetch the day about from sun to sun and rock the tedious year as in a delightful dream . . . For a garden is Arcady brought home. It is man's bit of gaudy make-believe his well-disguised fiction of an unvexed Paradise . . . a world where gayety knows no eclipse and winter and rough weather are held at bay.

A Quote by Jane Austen on force, time, and weather

She went, however, and they sauntered about together many a half hour in Mr. Grant's shrubbery, the weather being unusually mild for the time of year, and venturing sometimes even to sit down on one of the benches now comparatively unsheltered, remaining there perhaps till, in the midst of some tender ejaculation of Fanny's on the sweets of so protracted an autumn, they were forced by the sudden swell of a cold gust shaking down the last few yellow leaves about them, to jump up and walk for warmth.
