George Herbert Quotes

George Herbert Quotes

Who says that fictions only and false hair
Become a verse? Is there in truth no beauty?
Is all good structure in a winding stair?

Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright,
The bridal of the earth and sky;
The dew shall weep thy fall tonight,

For thou must die.

Man is no star, but a quick coal

Of mortal fire:
Who blows it not, nor doth control

A faint desire,

Woe be to him that reads but one book.

The best mirror is an old friend.
