Quotes About Soul

And in the morning what thou hast to do.

And growth of it: if, with thy watch, that too
Be down, then winde up both; since we shall be
Most surely judged, make thy accounts agree.

Can take in all, and verge enough for more.

To heaven hath a summer's day.

In ever-flowing meads of Asphodel.
