And so to bed...
And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Joseph Addison:
The dawn is overcast, the morning lowers,
And heavily in clouds brings on the day,
The great, the important day, big with the fate
Of Cato, and of Rome.
And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Daniel Lake:
On these fields of Passchendaele, skylarks sing and cattle graze;
in these fields of Flanders lives were spent in far off days.
No hint of what went on here! No sign of blood and bones;
but sixty thousand souls rest here beneath the white headstones;
on these fields of Passchendaele, where roam the silent sheep,
the only sound the wailing winds; those mothers who still weep:
Over fields of Passchendaele…..
And so to bed... quote for tonight is from J.B. Priestley:
Look - this little steamer, like all her brave and battered sisters, is immortal. She'll go sailing proudly down the years in the epic of Dunkirk. And our great grand-children, when they learn how we began this War by snatching glory out of defeat, and then swept on to victory, may also learn how the little holiday steamers made an excursion to hell and came back glorious.
And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Stone and sea are deep in life Stephen R. Donaldson:
Stone and sea are deep in life
Two unalterable symbols of the world
Permanence at rest
And permanence in motion
Participants in the power that remains
And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Longfellow:
Over the pallid sea, and the silvery mist of the meadows.
Silently one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Tennyson
We have but faith: we cannot know;
For knowledge is of things we see
And yet we trust it comes from thee,
A beam in darkness: let it grow.
Let knowledge grow from more to more,
But more of reverence in us dwell;
That mind and soul, according well,
May make one music as before,
But vaster. We are fools and slight;
We mock thee when we do not fear:
But help thy foolish ones to bear;
Help thy vain worlds to bear thy light.
