Sweet Memory Quotes

Still don't know what I was waiting for And my time was running wild. A million dead-end streets and Every time I thought I'd got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet. So I turned myself to face me But I've never caught a glimpse Of how the others must see the faker I'm much too fast to take that test.

David Robert Jones

O harmony! thou tenderest nurse of pain, If that thy note's sweet magic e'er can heal Griefs which the patient spirit oft may feel, Oh! let me listen to thy songs again; Till memory her fairest tints shall bring; Hope wake with brighter eye, and listening seem With smiles to think on some delightful dream.

William Lisle Bowles

Home, the spot of earth supremely blest,A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.

Robert Montgomery

Who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet.

German Proverb

Hunger makes everything sweet except itself, for want is the teacher of habits.

Antiphanes of Macedonia

Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow.

Benjamin Disraeli

Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste.

William Shakespeare

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into

Henry Beecher

For solitude sometimes is best society, And short retirement urges sweet return.

John Milton

Half the pleasure of solitude comes from having with us some friend to whom we can say how sweet solitude is

William Jay

Through shallow intellect, the mind becomes shallow, and one eats the fly, along with the sweets.

Alex Zisson

Rest is the sweet sauce of labor.

Plutarch

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Giving thanks for abundance is sweeter than the abundance itself...

Mevlana Rumi

Simple, sincere people seldom speak much of their piety. It shows itself in acts rather than in words, and has more influence than homilies or protestations. Beth could not reason upon or explain the faith that gave her courage and patience to give up life, and cheerfully wait for death. Like a confiding child, she asked no questions, but left everything to God and nature, Father and Mother of us all, feeling sure that they, and they only, could teach and strengthen heart and spirit for this life and the life to come. She did not rebuke Jo with saintly speeches, only loved her better for her passionate affection, and clung more closely to the dear human love, from which our Father never means us to be weaned, but through which He draws us closer to Himself. She could not say, "I'm glad to go," for life was very sweet for her. She could only sob out, "I try to be willing," while she held fast to Jo, as the first bitter wave of this great sorrow broke over them together.

Alcott, Louisa May

Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.

John Quincy Adams

Unfortunately her portrait will cure no one of the addiction to loving sweetly smiling angels with dreamy looks, innocent faces, and a strong-box for a heart.

Honor de Balzac

I believe we are still so innocent. The species are still so innocent that a person who is apt to be murdered believes that the murderer, just before he puts the final wrench on his throat, will have enough compassion to give him one sweet cup of water

Maya Angelou

Were't not affection chains thy tender days To the sweet glances of thy honored love, I rather would entreat thy company To see the wonders of the world abroad Than, living dully sluggardized at home, Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness.

William Shakespeare

Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.

Jerome K. Jerome

Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.

Jerome K. Jerome

"Were't not affection chains thy tender days To the sweet glances of thy honored love, I rather would entreat thy company To see the wonders of the world abroad Than, living dully sluggardized at home, Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness."

William Shakespeare

The world goes up and the world goes down, And the sunshine follows the rain; And yesterday's sneer and yesterday's frown Can never come over again, Sweet wife. No, never come over again.

Charles Kingsley

What is happening to my sexuality? It's cold, it's pasionless, and what's worse, it's dull. John Preston was right. SM has become a nice, sweet alternative to heavy petting, and the leaders of this SM "community" want us to be the Elks or some other animal-named civics association, gathering to sell expensive clothing and raffle tickets, congratulating ourselves on how nice we are.
