wonder

A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on eternity, sorrow, tears, and wonder

They say my verse is sad: no wonder; Its narrow measure spans Tears of eternity, and sorrow, Not mine. but man's.

A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on behavior, bravery, love, and wonder

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.E. Housman (1859 - 1936)
