Famous quotes containing the words gordon noel byron, george gordon noel, george gordon, noel byron, byron, noel and/or gordon:

    Italia! oh Italia! thou who hast
    The fatal gift of beauty.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    O Gold! I still prefer thee unto paper,
    Which makes bank credit like a bark of vapour.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    But as to women, who can penetrate
    The real sufferings of their she condition?
    Man’s very sympathy with their estate
    Has much of selfishness and more suspicion.
    Their love, their virtue, beauty, education,
    But form good housekeepers, to breed a nation.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    If I am fool, it is, at least, a doubting one; and I envy no one the certainty of his self-approved wisdom.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    The conqueror at least; who, ere Time renders
    His last award, will have the long grass grow
    Above his burnt-out brain and sapless cinders.
    If I might augur, I should rate but low
    Their chances: they are too numerous, like the thirty
    Mock tyrants, when Rome’s annals wax’d but dirty.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    It is singular how soon we lose the impression of what ceases to be constantly before us. A year impairs, a lustre obliterates. There is little distinct left without an effort of memory, then indeed the lights are rekindled for a moment—but who can be sure that the Imagination is not the torch-bearer?
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    As to “Don Juan,” confess ... that it is the sublime of that there sort of writing; it may be bawdy, but is it not good English? It may be profligate, but is it not life, is it not the thing? Could any man have written it who has not lived in the world? and tooled in a post-chaise? in a hackney coach? in a Gondola? against a wall? in a court carriage? in a vis a vis? on a table? and under it?
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
