Day of wrath that day of burning,
Seer and Sibyl speak concerning,
All the world to ashes turning.

The day are ever divine as to the first Aryans. They are of the
least pretension, and of the greatest capacity of anything that
exists. They come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent
from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do
not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

[Fr., Car il n'est si beau jour qui n'amene sa nuit.]
Quotes , Source: on the tombstone of Jean d'Orbesan at Padua
Cease not to learn until thou cease to live;
Think that day lost wherein thou draw'st no letter,
To make thyself learneder, wiser, better.
[Fr., Jusqu'au cercuil (mon fils) vueilles apprendre,
Et tien perdu le jour qui s'est passe,
Si tu n'y as quelque chose ammasse,
Pour plus scavant et plus sage te rendre.]

After the day there cometh the derke night;
For though the day be never so longe,
At last the belles ringeth to evensonge.

Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright,
The bridal of the earth and sky,
The dew shall weep thy fall to-night;
For thou must die.
