LXXI

No longer mourn for me when I am dead
Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell
Give warning to the world that I am fled
From this vile world with vilest worms to dwell:
Nay, if you read this line, remember not
The hand that writ it, for I love you so,
That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot,
If thinking on me then should make you woe.
O! if,--I say you look upon this verse,
When I perhaps compounded am with clay,
Do not so much as my poor name rehearse;
But let your love even with my life decay;
Lest the wise world should look into your moan,
And mock you with me after I am gone.
--William Shakespeare

Is not marriage an open question, when it is alleged, from the beginning of the world, that such as are in the institution
wish to get out, and such as are out wish to get in? -- Ralph Emerson

Religion: St. Augustine Quotes
For what is faith unless it is to believe what you do not see?


CXXV

Were\'t aught to me I bore the canopy,
With my extern the outward honouring,
Or laid great bases for eternity,
Which proves more short than waste or ruining?
Have I not seen dwellers on form and favour
Lose all and more by paying too much rent
For compound sweet; forgoing simple savour,
Pitiful thrivers, in their gazing spent?
No; let me be obsequious in thy heart,
And take thou my oblation, poor but free,
Which is not mix\'d with seconds, knows no art,
But mutual render, only me for thee.
Hence, thou suborned informer! a true soul
When most impeach\'d, stands least in thy control.
--William Shakespeare

XIII

O! that you were your self; but, love you are
No longer yours, than you your self here live:
Against this coming end you should prepare,
And your sweet semblance to some other give:
So should that beauty which you hold in lease
Find no determination; then you were
Yourself again, after yourself\'s decease,
When your sweet issue your sweet form should bear.
Who lets so fair a house fall to decay,
Which husbandry in honour might uphold,
Against the stormy gusts of winter\'s day
And barren rage of death\'s eternal cold?
O! none but unthrifts. Dear my love, you know,
You had a father: let your son say so.
--William Shakespeare


XVII

Who will believe my verse in time to come,
If it were fill\'d with your most high deserts?
Though yet heaven knows it is but as a tomb
Which hides your life, and shows not half your parts.
If I could write the beauty of your eyes,
And in fresh numbers number all your graces,
The age to come would say \'This poet lies;
Such heavenly touches ne\'er touch\'d earthly faces.\'
So should my papers, yellow\'d with their age,
Be scorn\'d, like old men of less truth than tongue,
And your true rights be term\'d a poet\'s rage
And stretched metre of an antique song:
But were some child of yours alive that time,
You should live twice,--in it, and in my rhyme.
--William Shakespeare



I\'ve never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a \'fat
cat\' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a
\'public-spirited philanthropist\'.
Ronald Reagan


LXV

Since brass, nor stone, nor earth, nor boundless sea,
But sad mortality o\'ersways their power,
How with this rage shall beauty hold a plea,
Whose action is no stronger than a flower?
O! how shall summer\'s honey breath hold out,
Against the wrackful siege of battering days,
When rocks impregnable are not so stout,
Nor gates of steel so strong but Time decays?
O fearful meditation! where, alack,
Shall Time\'s best jewel from Time\'s chest lie hid?
Or what strong hand can hold his swift foot back?
Or who his spoil of beauty can forbid?
O! none, unless this miracle have might,
That in black ink my love may still shine bright.
--William Shakespeare

T. S. Eliot


CII

My love is strengthen\'d, though more weak in seeming;
I love not less, though less the show appear;
That love is merchandiz\'d, whose rich esteeming,
The owner\'s tongue doth publish every where.
Our love was new, and then but in the spring,
When I was wont to greet it with my lays;
As Philomel in summer\'s front doth sing,
And stops her pipe in growth of riper days:
Not that the summer is less pleasant now
Than when her mournful hymns did hush the night,
But that wild music burthens every bough,
And sweets grown common lose their dear delight.
Therefore like her, I sometime hold my tongue:
Because I would not dull you with my song.
--William Shakespeare

XIX

Devouring Time, blunt thou the lion\'s paws,
And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tiger\'s jaws,
And burn the long-liv\'d phoenix, in her blood;
Make glad and sorry seasons as thou fleets,
And do whate\'er thou wilt, swift-footed Time,
To the wide world and all her fading sweets;
But I forbid thee one most heinous crime:
O! carve not with thy hours my love\'s fair brow,
Nor draw no lines there with thine antique pen;
Him in thy course untainted do allow
For beauty\'s pattern to succeeding men.
Yet, do thy worst old Time: despite thy wrong,
My love shall in my verse ever live young.

LXXXVII

Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,
And like enough thou know\'st thy estimate,
The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;
My bonds in thee are all determinate.
For how do I hold thee but by thy granting?
And for that riches where is my deserving?
The cause of this fair gift in me is wanting,
And so my patent back again is swerving.
Thy self thou gav\'st, thy own worth then not knowing,
Or me to whom thou gav\'st it, else mistaking;
So thy great gift, upon misprision growing,
Comes home again, on better judgement making.
Thus have I had thee, as a dream doth flatter,
In sleep a king, but waking no such matter.
--William Shakespeare

V

Those hours, that with gentle work did frame
The lovely gaze where every eye doth dwell,
Will play the tyrants to the very same
And that unfair which fairly doth excel;
For never-resting time leads summer on
To hideous winter, and confounds him there;
Sap checked with frost, and lusty leaves quite gone,
Beauty o\'er-snowed and bareness every where:
Then were not summer\'s distillation left,
A liquid prisoner pent in walls of glass,
Beauty\'s effect with beauty were bereft,
Nor it, nor no remembrance what it was:
But flowers distill\'d, though they with winter meet,
Leese but their show; their substance still lives sweet.
--William Shakespeare

Good morning,

I have a 50 volume set of Harvard Classics. They are red with a scale embossed on the front cover rather than the traditional shield. They also have many pull-outs in several different volumes. The copyright is 1909 with not further printing information. I have two questions: Was this set published withOUT the Reader's Guide and Lectures? And......Is this set more rare than the green 1909 edition? I don't see many sets for sale like mine.
Thanks for any information.

Martha

Hello,

I am interested in these books "the harvard classics" which you had for sale about a month ago or so. If still on the market, what is the price? Thank you very much.Martha wrote:
