Quote for the Day

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

- Lord Byron
(1788 - 1824)
Extract from "So We'll Go No More a Roving."


British poet and leading figure of the Romantic movement, of whom Lady Caroline Lamb said that he was "mad, bad and dangerous to know."
