Love Thy

Famous quotes containing the words love and/or thy:

    When I from black and he from white cloud free,
    And round the tent of Godlike lambs we joy,

    I’ll shade him from the heat till he can bear
    To lean in joy upon our father’s knee;
    And then I’ll stand and stroke his silver hair,
    And be like him, and he will then love me.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Let me obtain forgiveness of thee, Samson,
    Afford me place to shew what recompence
    Towards thee I intend for what I have misdone,
    Misguided; only what remains past cure
    Bear not too sensibly, nor still insist
    To afflict thy self in vain: though sight be lost,
    Life yet hath many solaces, enjoy’d
    Where other senses want not their delights
    At home in leisure and domestic ease,
    John Milton (1608–1674)
