 << Prev Page    Displaying page 8 of 8

To hear him speak, and sweetly smile
  You were in Paradise the while.
      - Friend's Passion for his Astrophel
        [Friends]

My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
  By just exchange, one for the other given:
    I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss,
      There never was a better bargain driven.
      - My True Love Hath my Heart [Love]

Thy fair hair my heart enchained.
      - Neapolitan Villanell [Hair]

The nightingale as soon as April bringeth
  Unto her rested sense a perfect waking,
    While late bare earth, proud of new clothing, springeth,
      Sings out her woes, a thorn her song-book making.
        And mournfully bewailing,
          Her throat in tunes expresseth
            What grief her breast oppresseth.
      - O Philomela Fair [Nightingales]

The scourge of life, and death's extreme disgrace,
  The smoke of hell,--that monster called Paine.
      - Sidera--Paine [Pain]

Yet sighes, deare sighes, indeeds true friends you are
  That do not leave your left friend at the wurst,
    But, as you with my breast, I oft have nurst
      So, gratefull now, you waite upon my care.
      - Sighes [Sighs]

If I could think how these my thoughts to leave,
  Or thinking still, my thoughts might have good end:
    If rebel sense would reason's law receive;
      Or reason foil'd would not in vain contend:
        Then might I think what thoughts were best to think:
          Then might I wisely swim, or gladly sink.
      - Sonnet [Thought]

And thou my minde aspire to higher things;
  Grow rich in the which never taketh rust.
      - Sonnet--Leave me, O Love [Knowledge]

The tip no jewel needs to wear:
  The tip is jewel of the ear.
      - Sonnet--What Tongue can Her Perfection Tell?
        [Jewels]

They are never alone that are accompanied with noble thoughts.
      - The Arcadia (bk. I) [Thought]

High erected thoughts seated in a heart of courtesy.
      - The Arcadia (bk. I, par. II) [Courtesy]

Shallow brooks murmur moste, deepe silent slide away.
      - The Arcadia--Thirsis and Dorus [Silence]

She is her selfe of best things the collection.
      - The Arcadia--Thirsis and Dorus [Women]

Laughter almost ever cometh of things most disproportioned to ourselves and nature: delight hath a joy in it either permanent or present; laughter hath only a scornful tickling.
      - The Defence of Poesy [Laughter]

With a tale, forsooth, he cometh to you with a tale which holdeth children from play, and old men from the chimney-corner.
      - The Defense of Poesy
        [Fiction : Story Telling]

Look in thy heart and write.
      - William Gray's Life of Sir Philip Sidney
        [Authorship]
