Lend, hoping for nothing again. [ Bible ]
The world recedes; it disappears!
Heaven opens on my eyes! my ears
With sounds seraphic ring:
Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly!
O Grave! where is thy victory?
O Death! where is thy sting? [ Pope ]
Lend only what you can afford to lose. [ Proverb ]
Gone is gone; no Jew will lend upon it. [ German Proverb ]
He that has but one coat cannot lend it. [ Proverb ]
Do not trust nor contend,
Nor lay wagers nor lend,
And you will have peace to your life's end. [ Proverb ]
Lend me thy clarion goodness! let me try
To sound the praise of merit ere it dies.
Such as I oft have chanced to espy,
Lost in the dreary shades of dull obscurity. [ Shenstone ]
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. [ William Shakespeare ]
From powerful causes spring the empiric's gains.
Man's love of life, his weakness, and his pains;
These first induce him the vile trash to try,
Then lend his name that other men may buy. [ Crabbe ]
Believing hear, what you deserve to hear.
Your birthday as my own to me is dear.
Blest and distinguish'd days! which we should prize
The first, the kindest bounty of the skies.
But yours gives most; for mine did only lend,
Me to the world; yours gave to me a friend. [ Martial ]
Whatever we give to the wretched, we lend to fortune. [ Seneca ]
A ready way to lose your friend is to lend him money. [ Proverb ]
Whatever you lend, let it be your money, not your name. [ Edward Bulwer Lytton ]
Better give a shilling than lend and loose half a crown. [ Proverb ]
He would not lend his knife, no, not to the devil to stab himself. [ Proverb ]
O Lord, that lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness. [ William Shakespeare ]
When a man has no occasion to borrow, he finds numbers willing to lend him. [ Goldsmith ]
Pawnshop; originally store of money to lend without interest to poor people. [ French ]
Look up, and not down; look forward, and not back; look out, and not in; and lend a hand. [ E. E. Hale ]
Though fear should lend him pinions like the wind, yet swifter fate will seize him from behind. [ Swift ]
Give, and you may keep your friend if you lose your money; lend, and the chances are that you lose your friend if ever you get back your money. [ Edward Bulwer-Lytton ]
There are three kinds of praise, - that which we yield, that which we lend, and that which we pay. We yield it to the powerful from fear, we lend it to the weak from interest, and we pay it to the deserving from gratitude. [ Colton ]
Let a woman once give you a task, and you are hers, heart and soul; all your care and trouble lend new charms to her for whose sake they are taken. To rescue, to revenge, to instruct, or protect a woman is all the same as to love her. [ Richter ]
If you lend a person any money, it becomes lost for any purpose as one's own. When you ask for it back again, you may find a friend made an enemy by your kindness. If you begin to press still further either you must part with that which you have intrusted, or else you must lose that friend. [ Plautus ]
Poetry is the first and last of all knowledge: it is immortal as the heart of men. If the labors of the men of science should ever create any revolution, direct or indirect, in our condition, and in the impressions which we habitually receive, the poet will then sleep no more than at present; he will be ready to follow the steps of the man of science, not only in those general indirect effects, but he will be at his side, carrying sensation into the midst of the objects of the science itself. The remotest discoveries of the chemist, the botanist, or mineralogist will be as proper objects of the poet's art as any upon which it can be employed, if the time should ever come when these things shall be familiar to us, and the relations under which they are contemplated by the followers of the respective sciences shall be manifestly and palpably material to us as enjoying and suffering beings. If the time should ever come when what is now called science, thus familiarized to men, shall be ready to put on. as it were, a form of flesh and blood, the poet will lend his divine spirit to aid the transfiguration, and will welcome the being thus produced as a dear and genuine inmate of the household of man. [ Wordsworth ]
