I know and love the good, yet ah! the worst pursue.
      - To Laura in Life (canzone XXI) [Goodness]

The time will come when every change shall cease,
  This quick revolving wheel shall rest in peace:
    No summer then shall glow, not winter freeze;
      Nothing shall be to come, and nothing past,
        But an eternal now shall ever last.
      - Triumph of Eternity (l. 117) [Eternity]

Those spacious regions where our fancies roam,
  Pain'd by the past, expecting ills to come,
    In some dread moment. by the fates assign'd,
      Shall pass away, nor leave a rack behind;
        And Time's revolving wheels shall lose at last
          The speed that spins the future and the past:
            And, sovereign of an undisputed throne,
              Awful eternity shall reign alone.
      - Triumph pf Eternity (l. 102) [Eternity]
