And so upon this wise I prayed -
Great Spirit, give to me
A heaven not so large as yours
But large enough for me. [ Emily Dickinson ]
What is my turn today may be yours tomorrow. [ Proverb ]
This day is yours, but whose shall tomorrow be? [ Proverb ]
My pulse, as yours, doth temperately keep time,
And makes as healthful music. [ William Shakespeare, Hamlet ]
Brutus and Caesar: what should be in Caesar?
Why should that name be sounded more than yours?
Write them together, yours is as fair a name;
Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well;
Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with them,
Brutus will start a spirit as soon as Caesar.
Now in the names of all the gods at once,
Upon what meat doth this our Caesar feed,
That he is grown so great? [ William Shakespeare ]
As this auspicious day began the race
Of every virtue join'd with every grace;
May you, who own them, welcome its return,
Till excellence, like yours, again is born.
The years we wish, will half your charms impair;
The years we wish the better half will spare;
The victims of your eyes will bleed no more,
But all the beauties of your mind adore. [ Jeffrey ]
Madam, I am, to the utmost of my power, not yours. [ Proverb ]
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 ]
It is only by loving a thing that you can make it yours. [ George Macdonald ]
Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours. [ Yogi Berra ]
That same face of yours looks like the title-page to a whole volume of roguery. [ Colley Gibber ]
O the world is but a word; were it all yours to give it in a breath, how quickly were it gone! [ Shakespeare ]
Mortals, what errors are yours! You have but an instant to live, and that instant is a burden.
You give medicine to a sick man, he hands you your fee; you cure his complaint, he cures yours. [ To a doctor ]
If you love something set it free. If it comes back it’s yours. If not, it was never meant to be. [ Source unknown ]
Do good to your friend, that he may be more wholly yours; to your enemy, that he may become your friend. [ Cleobulus ]
If you cannot inspire a woman with love of you, fill her above the brim with love of herself: all that runs over will be yours. [ Colton ]
Nobody but you owes you anything. Accept it and move on. The canvas of your life is yours. It is what you make of it. Paint it well.
God gave you that gifted tongue of yours, and set it between your teeth, to make known your true meaning to us, not to be rattled like a muffinman's bell. [ Carlyle ]
Make use of time, if you love eternity. Yesterday cannot be recalled. Tomorrow cannot be assured. Today is only yours, and if you procrastinate, you lose, and lose forever. One today is worth two tomorrows. [ Euchiridion ]
The idea you have once spoken, if even it were an idea, is no longer yours; it is gone from you, so much life and virtue is gone, and the vital circulations of yourself and your destiny and activity are henceforth deprived of it. [ Carlyle ]
O mothers! reflect upon the power that your Maker has placed in your hands; there is no earthly influence to be compared with yours; there is no combination of causes so powerful in promoting the happiness or misery of our race, as the instructions of home! [ J. S. C. Abbott ]
