However big the fool, there is always a bigger fool to admire him.
On and on eternally
Shall your altered fluid run,
Bud and bloom and go to seed;
But your singing days are done;
All your lovely words are spoken.
Once the ivory box is broken,
Beats the golden bird no more.
The customary cry,
'Come buy, come buy,'
With its iterated jingle
Of sugar-bated words:
Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love can transpose to form and dignity.
...
What stronger breastplate than a heart untainted?
Thrice is he armed that hath his quarrel just;
...
A hit, a very palpable hit.
Heaven-gates are not so highly arched
As princes' palaces: they that enter there
Must go upon their knees.
The poor world is almost six thousand years old, and in all this time there was not any man died in his own person,
videlicet
...
But he whose name is graved in the white stone
Shall last and shine when all of these are gone.
