Famous quotes containing the word poor:

    Thou source of all my bliss and all my woe,
    That found’st me poor at first, and keep’st me so.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1728–1774)

    Should poor souls fear a shade or night,
    Who came sure from a sea of light?
    Or since those drops are all sent back
    So sure to thee, that none doth lack,
    Why should frail flesh doubt any more
    That what God takes, He’ll not restore?
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)

    Poor men have grown to be rich men,
    And rich men grown to be poor again,
    And I am running to Paradise;
    And many a darling wit’s grown dull
    That tossed a bare heel when at school,
    Now it has filled an old sock full....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
