Coventry Patmore
To have nought
Is to have all things without care or thought!
Patmore quotes
Having my law the seventh time disobey'd,
I struck him, and dismiss'd
With hard words and unkiss'd,
—His Mother, who was patient, being dead.
The sunshine dreaming upon Salmon’s height
Is not so sweet and white
As the most heretofore sin-spotted Soul
That darts to its delight
Straight from the absolution of a faithful fight.

Patmore Coventry quotes
Life is not life at all without delight.
Patmore Coventry
For want of me the world’s course will not fail;
When all its work is done the lie shall rot;
The truth is great and shall prevail
When none cares whether it prevail or not.
Coventry Patmore quotes
None thrives for long upon the happiest dream.
