Madison Cawein Quotes

Madison Cawein Quotes: Though sands be black and bitter black the sea, Night lie before me and behind me night, And God within far Heaven refuse to light The consolation of the dawn for me,-- Between the shadowy burns of Heaven and Hell, It is enough love leaves my soul to dwell With memory.

Madison Cawein Quote: Why will we struggle to attain, and strive, When all we gain is but an empty dream?--Better, unto my thinking, doth it seemTo end it all and let who will survive;To find at last all beauty is but dust;That love and sorrow are the very same;That joy is only suffering's sweeter name;And sense is but the synonym of lust.Far better, yea, to me it seems to die;To set glad lips against the lips of Death--The only thing God gives that comforteth,The only thing we do not find a lie.
