Quotations for eve

Promising is the eve of giving. [ English Proverb, collected by George Herbert ]

How blue were Ariadne's eyes
When, from the sea's horizon line,
At eve, she raised them on the skies!
My Psyche, bluer far are thine. [ Aubrey De Vere ]

Well, when the eve has its last streak
The night has its first star. [ Robert Browning ]

All human history attests
That happiness for man - the hungry sinner —
Since Eve ate apples, much depends on dinner! [ Byron ]

The pale child, Eve, leading her mother, Night. [ Alexander Smith ]

O nightingale, that on yon blooming spray
Warblest at eve, when all the woods are still,
Thou with fresh hope the lovers heart doth fill! [ Milton ]

Adam must have an Eve, to blame for what he has done. [ German Proverb ]

Say to Pleasure, Gentle Eve, I will none of your apple. [ English Proverb, collected by George Herbert ]

Dewdrops are the gems of morning, but the tears of mournful eve. [ Coleridge ]

The silent snow possessed the earth, and calmly fell our Christmas-eve. [ Tennyson ]

Be work by day, guests at eve, weeks of toil, festive days of joy, the magic spell for thy future. [ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ]

America is a Paradise for women - that is why, like Eve, the American women are extremely anxious to get out of it. [ Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance ]

Most women spend their lives in robbing the old tree from which Eve plucked the first fruit. And such is the attraction of this fruit, that the most honest woman is not content to die without having tasted it. [ O. Feuillet ]

Human excellence, parted from God, is like a fable flower, which, according to Rabbis, Eve plucked when passing out of paradise - severed from its native root, it is only the touching memorial of a lost Eden; sad, while charming - beautiful, but dead. [ C. Stanford ]

Nature eschews regular lines; she does not shape her lines by a common model. Not one of Eve's numerous progeny in all respects resembles her who first culled the flowers of Eden. To the infinite variety and picturesque inequality of nature we owe the great charm of her uncloying beauty. [ Whittier ]
