To live it at its best
Write a love story
And be a great poet.

Life is a great poetry.
To love it at its best
Love everyone earnestly,
Without judging for a crest.

Life is a great poetry.
To live it at its best
Create a great history
Before going for the rest.

To paint it at its best
Through colors openly
As if, life is not a test.

Life is a great poetry.
To enjoy it at its best
Enjoy a golden dusk party
When birds return to nest. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Great History quotes by Debasish Mridha

Great History quotes by Stana Katic

#26. It should be obvious that this pattern of systematic holes and gaps in Iraq's declaration is not the result of accidents, editing oversights or technical mistakes. These are material omissions that - in our view - constitute another material breach.

Great History quotes by John Negroponte

Great History quotes by Endesha Ida Mae Holland
#29. One of its sources [Leaf by Niggle] was a great-limbed poplar tree that I could see even lying in bed. It was suddenly lopped and mutilated by its owner, I do not know why.

Great History quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien

#31. So far as we know, Earth is the only planet which supports life, and it is the only planet on which we can survive. Our bodies and our minds are fashioned by it. Our hearts resonate with it. There will be little joy for the human spirit if we destroy the natural fabric of Earth with nothing left to do but go shopping. When we imagine the world a century from now, when we look our great grandchildren in the eye and see them smiling back at us because they know we cared for them, we smile too! - Author: Bob Brown
Great History quotes by Bob Brown

Great History quotes by Alejandro Zambra

Great History quotes by John Francis
#34. it's that particular connection between melancholy and humor that Klibansky, Panofsky, and Saxl examined in Saturn and Melancholy (1964). Just as melancholy is sadness made light, so humor is comedy that has lost its physical weight (that dimension of human carnality that, however, makes Boccaccio and Rabelais great) and casts doubts on the self, the world, and the entire network of relations they form. - Author: Italo Calvino
Great History quotes by Italo Calvino
#35. The lovers of beauty must unite in a league, and carry out some great propagandist work through the country.

Great History quotes by Robert Wilson Lynd
#36. No matter what Hitler said, he spoke with a fine feeling for the particular circle which he addressed ... He was a great psychologist. - Author: Wilhelm Keitel
Great History quotes by Wilhelm Keitel
#37. Water wrestles great opponents,
but has no hands,
and tramples great rivals,
but has no feet.
It slips through our fingers,
but can swallow entire towns.
Wind also slips through our fingers,
but can swallow entire cities. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Great History quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#38. I always seem to find myself fighting the law of equilibrium - the great leveling force that brings things to the mean and takes the 'cartoonishness' out of life. Perhaps I am doing a very unnatural thing ... If Einstein were still alive I would ask him about it. - Author: Jane Siberry
Great History quotes by Jane Siberry
#39. The Human Species could have been great but instead we became satisfied with lights on our tennis shoes. - Author: George Carlin

Great History quotes by Joe Manchin
#42. Beneath the rubbernecking Chums of Chance wheeled streets and alleyways in a Cartesian grid, sketched in sepia, mile on mile. "The Great Bovine City of the World," breathed Lindsey in wonder. Indeed, the backs of cattle far outnumbered the tops of human hats. From this height it was as if the Chums, who, out on adventures past, had often witnessed the vast herds of cattle adrift in everchanging cloudlike patterns across the Western plains, here saw that unshaped freedom being rationalized into movement only in straight lines and at right angles and a progressive reduction of choices, until the final turn through the final gate that led to the killingfloor. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Great History quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#43. Sometimes, in your battle with unbelief, your greatest ally will wrestle you - he might even make you limp - until you're desperate enough to say, 'I will not let you go unless you bless me.' It is a great mercy to be brought to the point where you're desperate enough to insist on what you need the most. - Author: Jon Bloom
Great History quotes by Jon Bloom

Great History quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#45. God keeps a niche
In Heaven, to hold our idols; and albeit
He brake them to our faces, and denied
That our close kisses should impair their white,
I know we shall behold them raised, complete,
The dust swept from their beauty, glorified,
New Memnons singing in the great God-light. - Author: Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Great History quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#46. We could think or feel as we wished toward the characters, or as the poet, discounting history, invited us to; we were the poet's guest, his world was his own kingdom, reached, as one of the poems told us, through the 'Ring of Words' ... - Author: Janet Frame
Great History quotes by Janet Frame

Great History quotes by Georgina Chapman
#50. She did not approach Caesar wrapped in a carpet, she was not a seductress, she did not use her charm to persuade the men in her life to lose their judgement, and she did not die by the bite of an asp…Yet other important elements of her career have been bypassed in the post-antique recension: she was a Skilled naval commander, a published medical authority, and an expert royal administrator who was met with adulation throughout the eastern Mediterranean, perhaps seen by some as a messianic figure, the hope for a future Eastern Mediterranean free of Roman domination. - Author: Duane W. Roller
Great History quotes by Duane W. Roller
#51. Trees are great messengers of peace. One of the worst crimes of modern humankind is indiscriminate cutting down of the trees, and forests, in the pursuit of establishing civilization. No wonder, that modern civilized society has everything but peace. - Author: Banani Ray
Great History quotes by Banani Ray

Great History quotes by Arjen Robben

Great History quotes by Peter Jackson

Great History quotes by Hiromu Arakawa
#60. Nothing is more human than to resist loss, which is why cynical politicians can get pretty far by offering up the fantasy that a loss can be reversed rather than overcome the hard way. This is the deepest lie of our recent national politics, the core falsehood encoded in "Make America Great Again." Beneath the impossible promises -- that coal alone will fuel our future, that a big wall can be built around our status quo, that climate change isn't even real -- is the deeper fantasy that time itself can be reversed, all losses restored, and thus no new ways of life required. - Author: Pete Buttigieg
Great History quotes by Pete Buttigieg
#61. I feel that the care of libraries and the use of books, and the knowledge of books, is a tremendously vital thing, and that we who deal with books and who love books have a great opportunity to bring about something in this country which is more vital here than anywhere else, because we have the chance to make a democracy that will be a real democrac. - Author: Eleanor Roosevelt
Great History quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#62. The ancients were destitute of many of the conveniences of life which have been invented or improved by the progress of industry; and the plenty of glass and linen has diffused more real comforts among the modern nations of Europe than the senators of Rome could derive from all the refinements of pompous or sensual luxury. - Author: Edward Gibbon
Great History quotes by Edward Gibbon
#63. You have a great passion for great works. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Great History quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#64. I have reveled in my littleness and irresponsibility. It has relieved me of the harassing desire to live, I feel content to live dangerously, indifferent to my fate; I have discovered I am a fly, that we are all flies, that nothing matters. It's a great load off my life, for I don't mind being such a micro-organism - to me the honour is sufficient of belonging to the universe - such a great universe, so grand a scheme of things. Not even Death can rob me of that honour. For nothing can alter the fact that I have lived; I have been I, if for ever so short a time. And when I am dead, the matter which composes my body is indestructible - and eternal, so that come what may to my "Soul," my dust will always be going on, each separate atom of me playing its separate part - I shall still have some sort of a finger in the Pie. When I am dead, you can boil me, burn me, drown me, scatter me - but you cannot destroy me: my little atoms would merely deride such heavy vengeance. Death can do no more than kill you. - Author: W.N.P. Barbellion
Great History quotes by W.N.P. Barbellion

Great History quotes by Frederick C. Beiser
#66. Time and space are but physiological colors which the eye makes, but the soul is light; where it is, is day; where it was, is night; and history is an impertinence and an injury, if it be any thing more than a cheerful apologue or parable of my being and becoming. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great History quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#67. Travel now by all means - if you have the time. But travel the right way, the way I travel. I am always reading and thinking of the history and geography of a place. I see its people in terms of these, placed in the social framework of time and space. - Author: Oliver Sacks
Great History quotes by Oliver Sacks
