Death's day is doom's day. [ Proverb ]
Even thou who mourn'st the daisy's fate,
That fate is thine - no distant date;
Stern Ruin's ploughshare drives elate
Full on thy bloom,
Till crush'd beneath the farrow's weight
Shall be thy doom. [ Burns ]
Under your good correction, I have seen.
When, after execution, judgment hath
Repented over his doom. [ William Shakespeare ]
Dreadful is their doom, whom doubt has driven
To censure fate, and pious hope forego. [ Beattie ]
O very gloomy is the House of Woe,
Where tears are falling while the bell is knelling.
With all the dark solemnities which show
That Death is in the dwelling!
O, very, very dreary is the room
Where Love, domestic Love, no longer nestles.
But smitten by the common stroke of doom.
The corpse lies on the trestles! [ Hood ]
Genius! thou gift of Heaven! thou Light divine!
Amid what dangers art thou doom'd to shine!
Oft will the body's weakness check thy force,
Oft damp thy Vigour, and impede thy course;
And trembling nerves compel thee to restrain
Thy noble efforts, to contend with pain;
Or Want (sad guest!) will in thy presence come,
And breathe around her melancholy gloom:
To Life's low cares will thy proud thought confine,
And make her sufferings, her impatience, thine. [ Crabbe ]
Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove;
No! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error, and upon me proved;
I never writ, nor no man ever loved. [ William Shakespeare ]
Death is an equal doom to good and bad, the common inn of rest. [ Spenser ]
Names alone mock destruction; they survive the doom of all creation. [ H. Trevanion ]
Liberty is a principle; its community is its security; exclusiveness is its doom. [ Kossuth ]
It is the glorious doom of literature that the evil perishes and the good remains. [ Bulwer Lytton ]
Whatever sorrows may be thy doom, bear them with patience, if necessity entail them. [ Homer ]
We must endure our doom as easily as may be, knowing as we do, that the power of necessity is irresistible. [ Aeschylus ]
Fate with impartial hand turns out the doom of high and low: her capacious urn is constantly shaking the names of all mankind. [ Horace ]
When we see our enemies and friends gliding away before us, let us not forget that we are subject to the general law of mortality, and shall soon be where our doom will be fixed forever. [ Johnson ]
The great moments of life are but moments like others. Your doom is spoken in a word or two. A single look from the eyes, a mere pressure of the hand, may decide it; or of the lips, though they cannot speak. [ Thackeray ]
