More From Edward Young
- "Our birth is nothing but our death begun, As tapers waste the moment they take fire."
- "The weak have remedies, the wise have joys; superior wisdom is superior bliss."
- "One to destroy, is murder by the law; and gibbets keep the lifted hand in awe; to murder thousands, takes a specious name, ‘War’s glorious art’, and gives immortal fame."
