ROBERT HERRICK QUOTES

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Fresh-quilted colours through the air:
Get up, sweet-slug-a-bed, and see
The dew-bespangling herb and tree.

ROBERT HERRICK, "Corinna's Going a Maying"

Oft have I heard both youths and virgins say,
Birds choose their mates and couple too this day:
But by their flight I never can divine
When I shall couple with my valentine.

ROBERT HERRICK, "To His Valentine on St. Valentine's Day"

Tears are the noble language of eye;
And when true love of words is destitute,
The eyes by tears speak, while the tongue is mute.

ROBERT HERRICK, "Tears are Tongues", Hesperides, Or Works Both Human and Divine

'Twixt kings and tyrants there's this difference known:
Kings seek their subjects' good, tyrants their own.

ROBERT HERRICK, Kings and Tyrants

Who after his transgression doth repent,
Is half, or altogether, innocent.

ROBERT HERRICK, Hesperides

In prayer the lips ne'er act the winning part
Without the sweet concurrence of the heart.

ROBERT HERRICK, Hesperides
