A Quote by Wilfred Owen on art, awareness, beauty, birds, body, children, death, fatherhood, gold, happiness, heart, hope, laughter, learning, meaning, men, words, world, and youth

Sonnet: To a Child Sweet is your antique body, not yet young; Beauty withheld from youth that looks for youth; Fair only for your father. Dear among Masters in art. To all men else uncouth; Save me, who know your smile comes very old, Learnt of the happy dead that laughed with gods; For earlier suns than ours have lent you gold; Sly fauns and trees have given you jigs and nods. But soon your heart, hot-beating like a bird's, Shall slow down. Youth shall lop your hair; And you must learn wry meanings in our words. Your smile shall dull, because too keen aware; And when for hopes your hand shall be uncurled, Your eyes shall close, being open to the world.

Wilfred Owen (1893 - 1918)

A Quote by Wilfred Owen on anger, death, good, patience, tenderness, and youth

Anthem for Doomed Youth What passing-bells for these who die as cattle? Only the monstrous anger of the guns. Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle Can patter out their hasty orisons. No mockeries for them; no prayers nor bells, Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs, - The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells; And bugles calling for them from sad shires. What candles may be held to speed them all? Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes Shall shine the holy glimmers of good-byes. The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall; Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds, And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds

A Quote by unknown on mind, patience, study, tears, and youth

Your evening has come, but though it is so, the lamps of your intellect firmly glow As they did in your youth, and all who will may sit at your feet and hear what the still, small voice has carved in your mind through years Of patient study and toil and tears.

A Quote by unknown on awareness, day, dreams, earth, future, gifts, god, happiness, laughter, love, music, opportunity, play, power, quiet, selfishness, soul, success, time, wisdom, work, and youth

Take Time Take time to think- It is the source of all power. Take time to read- It is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to play- It is the source of perpetual youth. Take time to be quiet- It is the opportunity to seek God. Take time to be aware- It is the opportunity to help others. Take time to love and be loved- It is God's greatest gift. Take time to laugh- It is the music of the soul. Take time to be friendly- It is the road to happiness. Take time to dream- It is what the future is made of. Take time to pray- It is the greatest power on earth. Take time to give- It is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to work- It is the price of success. There is a time for everything. . . .
