FRANCOIS DE MALHERBE
French lyric poet and critic
(1555 - 1628)

But she bloomed on earth, where the most beautiful things have the saddest destiny;
  And rose, she lived as live the roses, for the space of a morning.
    [Fr., Mais elle etait du mond, ou les plus belles choses
      Ont le pire destin;
        Et Rose, elle a vecu ce que vivent les roses,
          L'espece d'un matin.]
      - in a letter of condolence to M. du Perrier on the loss of his daughter
        [Roses]

While you are meditating revenge, the devil is meditating a recruit.
      - [Revenge]

To will what God doth will, that is the only science
  That gives us any rest.
      - Consolation (st. 7),
        (Longfellow's translation) [Resignation]

Our days and nights
  Have sorrows woven with delights.
      - To Cardinal Richelieu,
        (Longfellow's translation) [Sorrow]
