George Crabbe Quotes

George Crabbe Quotes: A club there is of smokers--dare you comeTo that close, clouded, hot, narcotic room?When, midnight past, the very candles seemDying for air, and give a ghastly gleam;When curling fumes in lazy wreaths arise,And prosing topers rub their winking eyes.

Quote about George Crabbe: This, books can do-nor this alone; they give New views to life, and teach us how to live; They soothe the grieved, the stubborn they chastise; Fools they admonish, and confirm the wise. Their aid they yield to all: they never shun The man of sorrow, nor the wretch undone; Unlike the hard, the selfish, and the proud, They fly not sullen from the suppliant crowd; Nor tell to various people various things, But show to subjects, what they show to kings.

George Crabbe Saying: To every class we have a school assign'd,Rules for all ranks, and food for every mind:Yet one there is, that small regard to ruleOr study pays, and still is deem'd a school;That, where a deaf, poor, patient widow sits,And awes some thirty infants as she knits;Infants of humble, busy wives, who paySome trifling price for freedom through the day.At this good matron's hut the children meet,Who thus becomes the mother of the street.

Sayings about George Crabbe: Say, ye oppress'd by some fantastic woes,Some jarring nerve that baffles your repose;Who press the downy couch, while slaves advanceWith timid eye, to read the distant glance;Who with sad prayers the weary doctor tease,To name the nameless ever-new disease;Who with mock patience dire complaints endure,Which real pain and that alone can cure;How would ye bear in real pain to lie,Despised, neglected, left alone to die?How would ye bear to draw your latest breath,Where all that's wretched paves the way for death?

Saying about George Crabbe: Wine, like the rising sun, possession gains, And drives the mist of dullness from the brains, The gloomy vapor from the spirit flies, And views of gaiety and gladness rise.

George Crabbe Quote: Shall he who soars, inspired by loftier views, Life's little cares and little pains refuse? Shall he not rather feel a double share Of mortal woe, when doubly arm'd to bear?
