Algernon Charles Swinburne quotes

Algernon Charles Swinburne
Thou has conquered, O pale Galilean.

Algernon Charles Swinburne
Time turns the old days to derision, our loves into corpses or wives and marriage and death and division make barren our lives.

Algernon Charles Swinburne
Before the beginning of years There came to the making of man Time, with a gift of tears Grief, with a glass that ran Pleasure, with pain for leaven Summer, with flowers that fell Remembrance, fallen from heaven, And madness risen from hell Strength without hands to smite Love that endures for a breath Night, the shadow of light, And Life, the shadow of death.
