But sighs subside, and tears (even widows') shrink,
  Like Arno in the summer, to a shallow.
      - [Proverbs]

But still her lips refused to say, farewell: for in that word, that fatal word, howe'er we promise, hope, believe, there breathes despair.
      - [Parting]

But thy true lovers more admire by far
  Thy naked beauties; give me a cigar.
      - [Proverbs]

But time strips our illusions of their hue,
  And one by one in turn some grand mistake
    Casts off its bright skin yearly like a snake.
      - [Proverbs]

But who alas! can love and then be wise?
      - [Proverbs]

But who would scorn the month of June,
  Because December with his breath so hoary,
    Must come? Much rather should he court the ray,
      To hoard up warmth against a wintry day.
      - [Proverbs]

By heaven! it is a splendid sight to see
  (For one who hath no friend, no brother there)
    Their rival scarfs of mix'd embroidery,
      Their various arms that glitter in the air!
        What gallant war-hounds rouse them from their lair,
          And gnash their fangs, loud yelling for the prey!
            All join the chase, but few the triumph share;
              The grave shall bear the chiefest prize away,
                And havoc scarce for joy can number their array.
      - [War]

By satire kept in awe, shrink from ridicule, though not from law.
      - [Satire]

By those tresses unconfin'd,
  Woo'd by very gentle wind;
    By those lids whose jetty fringe
      Kiss thy soft cheek's blooming tinge;
        By those wild eyes, like the roe,
          Ah! hear my vow before I go--
            My dearest life, I love thee!
              Can I cease to love thee?--no!
                Zoe mous s-as ogapo.
      - [Proposals]

Chaste were his steps, each kept within due bound,
  And elegance was sprinkled o'er his figure;
    Like swift Camilla, he scarce skimm'd the ground.
      And rather held in than put forth his vigor.
        And then he had an ear for music's sound,
          Which might defy a crotchet critic's rigor.
            Such classic pas--sans flaws--set off our hero.
              He glanced like a personified Bolero.
      - [Dancing]

Circumstance, that unspiritual god and miscreator, makes and helps along our coming evils.
      - [Circumstance]

Cleverness and cunning are incompatible.
      - [Cunning]

Clime of the unforgotten brave!
  Whose land, from plain to mountain-cave,
    Was Freedom's home, or Glory's grave;
      Shrine of the mighty! can it be,
        That this is all remains of thee?
      - [Greece]

Constant thought will overflow in words unconsciously.
      - [Thought]

Could we but keep our spirit to that height,
  We might be happy; but the clay will sink
    Its thoughts immortal.
      - [Thought]

Danger levels man and brute, and all are fellows in their need.
      - [Danger]

Dead! God, how much there is in that little word!
      - [Death]

Decayed in thy glory and sunk in thy worth.
      - [France]

Deep in my shut and silent heart.
      - [Secrecy]

Deformity is daring;
  It is its essence to o'ertake mankind
    By heart and soul, and make itself the equal--
      Ay, the superior of the rest. There is
        A spur in its halt movements, to become
          All that the others cannot, in such things
            As still are free for both, to compensate
              For stepdame Nature's avarice at first.
      - [Deformity]

Demons in act, but gods at least in face.
      - [Proverbs]

Despair defies even despotism; there is that in my heart would make its way through hosts with leveled spears.
      - [Despair]

Despair of all recovery spoils longevity,
  And makes men's miseries of alarming brevity.
      - [Proverbs]

Does not the law of Heaven say blood for blood?
  And he who taints kills more than he who sheds it.
      - [Slander]

Dreading that climax of all earthly ills,
  The inflammation of his weekly bills.
      - [Proverbs]
