Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further;
and here shall thy proud waves be stayed.
-Hebrew Bible, Jobs 38:11
Gin a body meet a body
Comin' thro' the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?
Comin's Thro' the Rye
Of all ebriosity, who does not prefer
to be intoxicated by the air he breathes?
-Henry David Thoreau, Walden
O magic sleep! O comfortable bird,
That broodest o'er the troubled sea of the mind
Till it is hush'd and smooth!
-Keats, Endymion, I
All things that are,
Are with more spirit chased than enjoy'd.
How like a younker or a prodigal
The scarfed bark puts from her native bay,
Hugg'd and embraced by the strumpet wind!
How like the prodigal doth she return,
With over-weather'd ribs and ragged sails,
Lean, rent, and beggar'd by the strumpet wind!
The Merchant of Venice
