Byron

Famous quotes containing the word byron:

    My beautiful, my own
    My only Venice—this is breath! Thy breeze
    Thine Adrian sea-breeze, how it fans my face!
    Thy very winds feel native to my veins,
    And cool them into calmness!
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    And yet a little tumult, now and then, is an agreeable quickener of sensation; such as a revolution, a battle, or an adventure of any lively description.

    The fatal gift of beauty.
