John Godfrey Saxe Quotes

Give me kisses! Nay, 'tis true
I am just as rich as you;
And for every kiss I owe,
I can pay you back, you know.
Kiss me, then,
Every moment, and again.

I love vast libraries; yet there is a doubt,
If one be better with them or without,
Unless he use them wisely, and, indeed,
Knows the high art of what and how to read.

Tis well to borrow from the good and the great; 'Tis wise to learn: 'tis God-like to create!

At Learning's fountain it is sweet to drink,
But 'tis a nobler privilege to think.
