Quotes from London, Dryden and me.
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
I re-read Dryden and London yesterday. Here are some quotes and thoughts.
“Marriage is dead, when the pleasure had fled.”
“Can love be a blessing, or worth the possessing, can life be a blessing
if love were away.’
“What peace can be, where both to one pretend”
“Kiss we and part; no further can we go; And better death than we go high to low
should dwindle, or decline from strong to weak,”
“Did the gods sleep? I wondered. Or were they dead?”
“Never was lovers ecstasy like theirs. They had not killed love with kisses.”
“When we learn. The goal of life isn’t for us to have everything. We have gained wisdom.”
“Writers must live and live some more. Drink from life ventures and never regret what we didn’t do.
Drink, dance and hold many lovers, make the pen come alive and fearless. We need tales and stories
from a person who have lived and learn. Everyday is a new opportunity.”
