Famous quotes by anne bradstreet:

    O Time the fatal wrack of mortal things,
    That draws oblivion’s curtains over kings;
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)

    Thy love is such I can no way repay,
    The heavens reward thee manifold I pray.
    Then while we live, in love lets so persever,
    That when we live no more, we may live ever.
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)
