Love that asketh love again
Finds the barter naught but pain;
Love that giveth in full store
Aye receives as much, and more.
Love exacting nothing back
Never knoweth any lack;
Love compelling Love to pay,
Sees him bankrupt every day. [ Dinah Muloch Craik ]
All my past life is mine no more,
The flying hours are gone
Like transitory dreams given over,
Whose images are kept in store,
By memory alone. [ Rochester ]
Welcome, dear Goldenrod, once more.
Thou mimic, flowering elm!
I always think that summer's store
Hangs from thy laden stem. [ Horace H. Scudder ]
'Tis sweet, as year by year we lose
Friends out of sight, in faith to muse
How grows in Paradise our store. [ Keble ]
To review one's store is to mow twice. [ English Proverb, collected by George Herbert ]
As great a store
Have we of books as bees of herbs or more. [ Henry Vaughan ]
Curst be the gold and silver which persuade
Weak men to follow far fatiguing trade!
The lily peace outshines the silver store,
And life is dearer than the golden ore.
Yet money tempts us over the desert brown,
To every distant mart and wealthy town. [ Collins ]
The honey-bee that wanders all day long
The field, the woodland, and the garden over.
To gather in his fragrant winter store.
Humming in calm content his winter song,
Seeks not alone the rose's glowing breast,
The lily's dainty cup, the violet's lips.
But from all rank and noxious weeds he sips
The single drop of sweetness closely pressed
Within the poison chalice. [ Anne C. Lynch Botta ]
Giving much to the poor increases a man's store. [ Proverb ]
We gape, we grasp, we gripe, add store to store;
Enough requires too much; too much craves more. [ Quarles ]
Giving much to the poor doth enrich a man's store. [ English Proverb, collected by George Herbert ]
There are, whom heaven has blessed with store of wit,
Yet want as much again to manage it;
For wit and judgment ever are at strife,
Tho' meant each other's aid, like man and wife. [ Pope ]
The strong must build stout cabins for the weak;
Must plan and stint; must sow and reap and store;
For grain takes root though all seems bare and bleak. [ Eugene Lee-Hamilton ]
They are the heritage that glorious minds
Bequeath unto the world! — a glittering store
Of gems, more precious far than those he finds
Who searches miser's hidden treasures over.
They are the light, the guiding star of youth.
Leading his spirit to the realms of thought,
Pointing the way to Virtue, Knowledge, Truth,
And teaching lessons, with deep wisdom fraught.
They cast strange beauty round our earthly dreams,
And mystic brightness over our daily lot;
They lead the soul afar to fairy scenes,
Where the world's under visions enter not;
They're deathless and immortal — ages pass away,
Yet still they speak, instruct, inspire, amidst decay! [ Emeline S. Smith ]
They that have good store of butter may lay it on thick. [ Proverb ]
He carries a store in one hand, and offers bread with the other. [ Plautus ]
He is a fool who empties his purse, or store, to fill another's. [ Spanish Proverb ]
Pawnshop; originally store of money to lend without interest to poor people. [ French ]
Nature was here so lavish of her store, That she bestowed until she had no more. [ Brown ]
What would we not give to still have in store the first blissful moment we ever enjoyed! [ Rochepedre ]
Fond fool! six feet shall serve for all thy store, and he that cares for most shall find no more. [ Bishop Hall ]
General observations drawn from particulars are the jewels of knowledge, comprehending great store in a little room. [ Locke ]
Who can blame me if I cherish the belief that the world is still young, - that there are great possibilities in store for it? [ Tyndall ]
No peace was ever won from fate by subterfuge or agreement; no peace is ever in store for any of us but that which we shall win by victory over shame or sin--victory over the sin that oppresses, as well as over that which corrupts. [ John Ruskin ]
I pick up favourite quotations and store them in my mind as ready armour, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence. Of these there is a very favourite one from Thomson: Attach thee firmly to the virtuous deeds
And offices of life; to life itself,
With all its vain and transient joys, sit loose. [ Burns ]
If I ever opened a trampoline store, I don't think I'd call it Trampo-Land, because you might think it was a store for tramps, which is not the impression we are trying to convey with our store. On the other hand, we would not prohibit tramps from browsing, or testing the trampolines, unless a tramp's gyrations seemed to be getting out of control. [ Jack Handey, Deep Thoughts ]
Since I was seven years old I have seldom take, a dose of medicine, and have still seldomer needed one. But up to seven I lived exclusively on allopathic medicines. Not that I needed them, for I don't think I did; it was for economy; my father took a drug-store for a debt, and it made cod-liver oil cheaper than the other breakfast foods. We had nine barrels of it, and it lasted me seven years. Then I was weaned. The rest of the family had to get along with rhubarb and ipecac and such things, because I was the pet. I was the first Standard Oil Trust. I had it all. By the time the drugstore was exhausted my health was established, and there has never been much the matter with me since. [ Mark Twain, Seventieth Birthday speech ]
