5 Famous Quotes by Thomas Love Peacock
10/18/1785 - 1/23/1866
My thoughts by night are often filled
With visions false as fair:
For in the past alone, I build
My castles in the air.
Quotes, by Thomas Love Peacock , Source: Castles in the Air (st. 1)
My steps have pressed the flowers,
That to the Muses' bowers
The eternal dews of Helicon have given:
And trod the mountain height,
Where Science, young and bright,
Scans with poetic gaze the midnight-heaven.
Yet have I found no power to vie
With thine, severe necessity!
Quotes, by Thomas Love Peacock , Source: Necessity
The mountain sheep are sweeter,
But the valley sheep are fatter.
We therefore deemed it meeter
To carry off the latter.
