Walter Savage Landor quotes (12)

Delay in justice is injustice.
Walter Savage Landor   Category: Justice

Many love music but for musics sake Many because her touches can awake Thoughts that repose within the breast half-dead And rise to follow where she loves to lead. What various feelings come from days gone by! What tears from far-off sources dim the eye! Few when light fingers with sweet voices play And melodies swell pause and melt away Mind how at every touch at every tone A spark of life hath glistened and hath gone.
Walter Savage Landor   Category: Unsorted

Walter Savage Landor   Category: Writing

Absence and death are the same only that in death there is no suffering.
Walter Savage Landor   Category: Absent

The bird of wisdom flies low and seeks her food under hedges; the eagle himself would be starved if he always soared aloft and against the sun.
Walter Savage Landor   Category: Wisdom

I see the rainbow in the sky the dew upon the grass; I see them and I ask not why they glimmer or they pass. With folded arms I linger not to call them back; 'twere vain: In this or in some other spot I know they'll shine again.
Walter Savage Landor   Category: Dream

If there were no falsehood in the world there would be no doubt; if there were no doubt there would be no inquiry; if no inquiry no wisdom no knowledge no genius.
Walter Savage Landor   Category: Youth

The flame of anger bright and brief sharpens the barb of love.
