Nature, Whose Sweet Rains Fall Of Just And Unjust Alike, Will Have Clefts In The Rocks Where I May Hide, And Secret Valleys In Whose Silence I May Weep Undetected.

~ Oscar Wilde, "De Profundis"
The Man That Hath No Music In Himself, Nor Is Not Moved With Concord Of Sweet Sounds, Is Fit For Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils; The Motions Of His Spirit Are Dull As Night, And His Affections Dark As Erebus. Let No Such Man Be Trusted.

For I Do Not Believe God Means Us Thus To Divide Life Into Two Halves - To Wear A Grave Face On Sunday, And To Think It Out-of-place To Even So Much As Mention Him On A Week-day. Do You Think He Cares To See Only Kneeling Figures And To Hear Only Tones Of Prayer - And That He Does Not Also Love To See The Lambs Leaping In The Sunlight, And To Hear The Merry Voices Of The Children, As They Roll Amoung The Hay? Surely Their Innocent Laughter Is As Sweet In His Ears As The Grandest Anthem That Ever Rolled Up From The Dim Religious Light Of Some Solemn Cathedral?
~ Lewis Carroll
How Sweet And Soothing Is This Hour Of Calm I Thank Thee, Night For Thou Has Chased Away These Horrid Bodements Which, Amidst The Throng, I Could Not Dissipate And With The Blessing Of Thy Benign And Quiet Influence Now Will I To My Couch, Although To Rest Is Almost Wronging Such A Night As This.
~ Lord Byron
Idleness, Like Kisses, To Be Sweet Must Be Stolen.
~ Jerome K. Jerome
