Author Quotes

For I think that it's just as much good sense, if one can keep to the point, as to twist my words round each other.

Fair friend, in singing I call you: Sleep no longer, for I hear the bird sing Who goes seeking day through the wood And I fear that the jealous one will attack you, And soon it will be dawn!

Fair, gentle friend, I’ve found so dear a home I wish that dawn might never come again; the loveliest lady ever born of woman Lies in my arms, and I care not a straw For jealous fool or dawn!

I could easily make it more obscure, but a song's merit is not complete when all are not partners in it.

Love is perfect kindness, which is born - there is no doubt - from the heart and eyes. The eyes make it blossom; the heart matures it.
