George Herbert Quotes
Sometimes the best gain is to lose.
The best mirror is an old friend.
Every mile is two in winter.
Go not for every grief to the physician, nor for every quarrel to the lawyer, nor for every thirst to the pot.
He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.
He who cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself.
Living well is the best revenge.
Love and a cough cannot be hid.
Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.
There would be no great men if there were no little ones.
Woe be to him that reads but one book.
You must lose a fly to catch a trout.

Poem of the day
In A Silence
by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey
Heart to heart!
And the stillness of night and the moonlight, like hushed breathing
Silently, stealthily moving across thy hair!
O womanly face!
Tender and strong and lucent with infinite feeling,
Shrinking with startled joy, like wind-struck water,
And yet so frank, so unashamed of love!
