John Masefield Quotes

John Masefield Quotes

But Time and Tide and Buttered Eggs wait for no man.

Only the road and the dawn, the sun, the wind, and the rain,
And the watch fire under stars, and sleep, and the road again.

I have seen flowers come in stony places
And kind things done by men with ugly faces,
And the gold cup won by the worst horse at the races,
So I trust, too.

The distant soul can shake the distant friend's soul and make the longing felt, over untold miles.
