Quotes

    Masha Paltsevahas quotedlast year
    We that with song our pilgrimage beguile,
    With purple islands which a sunset bore,
    We, sunk upon the sacrilegious shore,
    May parley with oblivion awhile.
    Masha Paltsevahas quotedlast year
    I think our world is not a place of rest,
    But where a man may take his little ease,
    Until the landlord whom he never sees
    Gives that apartment to another guest.
    Masha Paltsevahas quotedlast year
    Live well! Be wary of this life, I say;
    Do not o'erload yourself with righteousness.
    Behold! the sword we polish in excess,
    We gradually polish it away.
