Famous quotes by Lord Byron:Sort:PopularA - Z

For the sword outwears its sheath, And the soul wears out the breast, And the heart must pause for breathe, And love itself have rest
A pretty woman is a welcome guest.
All who would win joy, must share it; happiness was born a twin.
Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.
And dreams in their development have breath,
And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy;
They leave a weight upon our waking thoughts,
They take a weight from off our waking toils,
They do divide our being.
But words are things; and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew, upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause for breath,
And love itself have rest.
How sweet and soothing is this hour of calm I thank thee, night for thou has chased away these horrid bodements which, amidst the throng, I could not dissipate and with the blessing of thy benign and quiet influence now will I to my couch, although to rest is almost wronging such a night as this.
How sweet and soothing is this hour of calm! I thank thee, night! for thou has chased away these horrid bodements which, amidst the throng, I could not dissipate; and with the blessing of thy benign and quiet influence now will I to my couch, although to rest is almost wronging such a night as this.
Now hatred is by far the longest pleasure; Men love in haste, but they detest at leisure.
Oh too convincing - dangerously dear - In woman's eye the unanswerable tear
On with the dance! Let joy be undefined!
Opinions are made to be changed - or how is the truth to be got at.
Poetry is the lava of the imagination whose eruption prevents an earthquake.
Sweet is revenge - especially to women.
The drying up a single tear has more of honest fame than shedding seas of gore.
With just enough of learning to misquote.
[Poetry] is the lava of the imagination whose eruption prevents an earthquake.
