„Nejhorší okamžik pro ateistu nastane tehdy, když je za něco nesmírně vděčný a nemá přitom nikoho, komu by za to poděkoval.“

„Sometimes thou seem'st not as thyself alone, But as the meaning of all things that are.“


„The worst moment for the atheist is when he is really thankful and has nobody to thank.“

„Look in my face; my name is Might-have-been;
I am also call'd No-more, Too-late, Farewell“
The House of Life

„Places that are empty of you are empty of life.“

„I have been here before,
But when or how I cannot tell:
I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet keen smell,
The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.

You have been mine before,—
How long ago I may not know:
But just when at that swallow's soar
Your neck turn'd so,
Some veil did fall,—I knew it all of yore.

Has this been thus before?
And shall not thus time's eddying flight
Still with our lives our love restore
In death's despite,
And day and night yield one delight once more?“
The Complete Poetical Works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti

„The blessed damozel lean'd out
From the gold bar of Heaven;
Her eyes were deeper than the depth
Of waters still'd at even;
She had three lilies in her hand,
And the stars in her hair were seven.“

„Love, which is quickly kindled in the gentle heart, seized this man for the fair form that was taken from me, the manner still hurts me. Love which absolves no beloved one from loving, seized me so strongly with his charm that, as thou seest, it does not leave me yet“ Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology


„I have been here before,
But when or how I cannot tell:
I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet keen smell,
The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.“
The Complete Poetical Works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti

„A Sonnet is a
moment's
monument,—
Memorial from the
Soul's eternity
To one dead
deathless hour.“

„Oh how the family affections combat
Within this heart, and each hour flings a bomb at
My burning soul! Neither from owl nor from bat
Can peace be gained until I clasp my wombat.“

„Her enchanted hair was the first gold,
and still she sits, young while the earth is old.“


„I marked all kindred Powers the heart finds fair:--
Truth, with awed lips; and Hope, with eyes upcast;
And Fame, whose loud wings fan the ashen Past
To signal-fires, Oblivion's flight to scare;
And Youth, with still some single golden hair
Unto his shoulder clinging, since the last
Embrace wherein two sweet arms held him fast;
And Life, still wreathing flowers for Death to wear.

Love's throne was not with these; but far above
All passionate wind of welcome and farewell“
The House of Life

„The Stealthy School of Criticism.“

„Can peace be gained until I clasp my wombat?“

„Sudden Light


I have been here before,
But when or how I cannot tell:
I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet keen smell,
The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.

You have been mine before,—
How long ago I may not know:
But just when at that swallow's soar
Your neck turned so,
Some veil did fall,—I knew it all of yore.

Has this been thus before?
And shall not thus time's eddying flight
Still with our lives our love restore
In death's despite,
And day and night yield one delight once more?“
