Alexander Pope in Wikipedia
To err is human, to forgive divine.
For fools rush in where angels fear to tread
Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll; charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
Where'er you walk, cool glades shall fan the glade / Trees, where you sit, shall crowd into a shade: / Where'er you tread, the blusing flow'rs shall rise, / And all things flourish where you turn your eyes.
Authors, like coins, grow dear as they grow old:It is the rust we value, not the gold.
Clearly, we are disappointed to not win a final tonight, but we don't want this feeling again and we will do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen again.
What has a writer to be bombastic about? Whatever good a man may write is the consequence of accident, luck, or surprise, and nobody is more surprised than an honest writer when he makes a good phrase or says something truthful.
(July 22, 1900 - February 28, 1977)
While women weep, as they do now, I'll fight; while children go hungry, as they do now I'll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I'll fight; while there is a drunkard left, while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I'll fight, I'll fight to the very end!
