"What is the worst of woes that wait on age?/ What stamps the wrinkle deep on the brow?/ To view each loved one blotted from life's page/ And be alone on earth as I am now." ~ Lord George Gordon Byron (Painting: Morning Sun by Edward Hopper)
"Like the measles, love is most dangerous when it comes late in life." ~ Lord George Gordon Byron
"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,/ There is a rapture on the lonely shore,/ There is a society where none intrudes/ By the deep sea, and music in its roar." ~ Lord George Gordon Byron
"My days are in the yellow leaf;/ The flowers and fruits of love are gone;/ The worm, the canker, and the grief/ Are mine alone." ~ Lord George Gordon Byron
