Matthew Prior Quotes
Brief author info: Matthew Prior (1664-1721) English poet and diplomat.
Showing: 1 - 10 Matthew Prior Quotes of 11
Who breathes must suffer, and who thinks must mourn; And he alone is blessed who ne'er was born.
Ods life! must one swear to the truth of a song?
From ignorance our comfort flows, The only wretched are the wise.
They always talk who never think.
He's half absolv'd Who has confess'd.
Live to explain thy doctrine by thy life.
Her hair In ringlets rather dark than fair, Does down her ivory bosom roll, And hiding half adorns the whole.
For hope is but the dream of those that wake.
Live to explain thy doctrine by thy life.
Be to her virtues very kind; Be to her faults a little blind.
