5 Famous Quotes by Erasmus Darwin
12/12/1731 - 4/18/1802
Till o'er the wreck, emerging from the storm,
Immortal Nature lifts her changeful form:
Mounts from her funeral pyre on wings of flame,
And soars and shines, another and the same.

And hail their queen, fair regent of the night.
Quotes, by Erasmus Darwin , Source: Botanic Garden (pt. I, canto II, l. 90)
No radiant pearl, which crested Fortune wears,
No gem that twinkling hangs from Beauty's wars.
Not the bright stars which Night's blue arch adorn,
Nor rising suns that gild the vernal morn,
Shine with such lustre as the tear that flows
Down Virtue's manly cheek for others' woes.
Quotes, by Erasmus Darwin , Source: The Botanic Garden (pt. II, canto III, l. 459)
Soon shall thy arm, unconquered steam, afar
Drag the slow barge, or drive the rapid car;
Or on wide waving wings expanded bear
The flying chariot through the fields of air.
