To outward view of blemish or of spot.
Bereft of light, their seeing have forgot.
Nor to their idle orbs doth sight appear
Of sun, or moon, or star, throughout the year.
Or man, or woman. Yet I argue not
Against Heaven's hand or will, nor have a jot
Of heart or hope; but still bear up and steer
Right onward. [ Milton ]
Adversity is easier borne, than prosperity forgot. [ Proverb ]
If you have no enemies, it is a sign fortune has forgot you. [ Proverb ]
