And both were young, and one was beautiful.
      - The Dream (st. 2) [Youth]

And to his eye
  There was but one beloved face on earth,
    And that was shining on him.
      - The Dream (st. 2) [Face : Love]

Herself the solitary scion left
  Of a time-honour'd race.
      - The Dream (st. 2) [Posterity]

She was his life,
  The ocean to the river of his thoughts,
    Which terminated all.
      - The Dream (st. 2) [Women]

She knew she was by him beloved,--she knew
  For quickly comes such knowledge, that his heart
    Was darken'd with her shadow.
      - The Dream (st. 3) [Love]

And they were canopied by the blue sky,
  So cloudless, clear, and purely beautiful,
    That God alone was to be seen in Heaven.
      - The Dream (st. 4) [Sky]

When age chills the blood, when our pleasures are past--
  For years fleet away with the wings of the dove--
    The dearest remembrance will still be the last,
      Our sweetest memorial the first kiss of love.
      - The First Kill of Love (st. 7) [Kisses]

Who falls from all he knows of bliss,
  Cares little into what abyss.
      - The Giaour (l. 1,091) [Recklessness]

The cold in clime are cold in blood,
  Their love can scarce deserve the name.
      - The Giaour (l. 1,099) [Love]

I die,--but first I have possess'd,
  And come what may, I have been bless'd.
      - The Giaour (l. 1,114) [Possession]

Yes, Love indeed is light from heaven;
  A spark of that immortal fire
    With angels shared, by Allah given
      To lift from earth our low desire.
      - The Giaour (l. 1,131) [Love]

Nor ear can hear nor tongue can tell
  The tortures of that inward hell!
      - The Giaour (l. 748) [Hell]

Such is the aspect of this shore;
  'Tis Greece, but living Greece no more!
    So coldly sweet, so deadly fair,
      We start, for soul is wanting there.
      - The Giaour (l. 90) [Greece]

Better to sink beneath the shock
  Than moulder piecemeal on the rock!
      - The Giaour (l. 969) [Choice]

Yet still there whispers the small voice within,
  Heard through Gain's silence, and o'er Glory's din;
    Whatever creed be taught or land be trod,
      Man's conscience is the oracle of God.
      - The Island (canto I, st. 6) [Conscience]

Sublime tobacco! which from east to west,
  Cheers the tar's labour or the Turkman's rest;
    Which on the Moslem's ottoman divides
      His hours, and rivals opium and his brides;
        Magnificent in Stamboul, but less grand,
          Though not less loved, in Wapping or the Strand:
            Divine in hookas, glorious in a pipe,
              When tipp'd with amber, mellow, rich, and ripe;
                Like other charmers wooing the caress,
                  More dazzlingly when daring in full dress;
                    Yet thy true lovers more admire by far
                      Thy naked beauties--Give me a cigar!
      - The Island (canto II, st. 19) [Tobacco]

The nightingale, their only vesper-bell, sung sweetly to the rose the day's farewell.
      - The Island (canto II, XV, 57)

Jack was embarrassed--never hero more,
  And as he knew not what to say, he swore.
      - The Island (canto III, st. 5) [Swearing]

Right--that will do for the marines.
      - The Island (II, XXI) [Navy]

And Doubt and Discord step 'twixt thine and thee.
      - The Prophecy of Dante (canto II, l. 140)

Shaggy shade
  Of desert-loving pine, whose emerald scalp
    Nods to the storm.
      - The Prophecy of Dante (canto II, l. 63)

  Is far the worst of treasons. Dost thou deem
    None rebels except subjects? The prince who
      Neglects or violates his trust is more
        A brigand than the robber-chief.
      - The Two Foscari (act II, sc. 1) [Tyranny]

Sorrow preys upon
  Its solitude, and nothing more diverts it
    From its sad visions of the other world
      Than calling it at moments back to this.
        The busy have no time for tears.
      - The Two Foscari (act IV, sc. 1) [Sorrow]

A thirst for gold,
  The beggar's vice, which can but overwhelm
    The meanest hearts.
      - The Vision of Judgment (st. 43) [Gold]

Endearing Waltz--to thy more melting tune
  Bow Irish jig, and ancient rigadoon.
    Scotch reels, avaunt! and country-dance forego
      Your future claims to each fantastic toe!
        Waltz--Waltz alone--both legs and arms demands,
          Liberal of feet, and lavish of her hands.
      - The Waltz (l. 109) [Dancing]
