Robert Burns Quotes

Inspirational quotes by Robert Burns

O would some power the giftie gie us to see ourselves as others see us.
I have a hundred times wished that one could resign life as an officer resigns a commission.
If there is another world, he lives in bliss. If there is none, he made the best of this.

The Real And The Ideal
 by Owen Suffolk

I feel I have - and who has not?
An inner and outer life:

With sorrow and with suff'ring rife;
While in the other may be found
A magic world of fancies fair,
Where brightest dreams of joy abound,
And never enters dark despair.
