DIONYSIUS OF CHALCUS
Greek poet and orator
(fl. c. 444 BC)

I wish I might a rose-bud grow
  And thou wouldst cull me from the bower.
    To place me on that breast of snow
      Where I should bloom a wintry flower.
      - [Roses]

I wish I were the lily's leaf
  To fade upon that bosom warm,
    Content to wither, pale and brief,
      The trophy of thy paler form.
      - [Lilies]

Necessity is stronger than human nature.
      - [Necessity]
