Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
– Dylan Thomas

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

--Terry Pratchett

#Literature #writing #quote


What a piece of work is a man, How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an Angel!

In apprehension how like a god, the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals. and yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither; though by your smiling you seeme to say so
– Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Hamlet (Act II, Scene II)

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
– W.B. Yeats, Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage:
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage.
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone, that soar above,
Enjoy such liberty.
– Richard Lovelace, To Althea, from Prison

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #animals, #hamsters, #humor, #language, #literature, and #photography.

I’m still on Pluspora, but decided to sign up on Diaspora too, just to be careful. You can find me both places right now.
