Quotes by Leigh Hunt
The two divinest things this world has got,
A lovely woman in a rural spot!
Oh for a seat in some poetic nook,
Just hid with trees and sparkling with a brook!
With spots of sunny openings, and with nooks
To lie and read in, sloping into brooks.
Jenny kiss'd me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in!
The same people who can deny others everything are famous for refusing themselves nothing.
Stolen sweets are always sweeter,
Stolen kisses much completer,
Stolen looks are nice in chapels,
Stolen, stolen, be your apples.
She dropped her glove, to prove his love, then looked at him and smiled;
He bowed, and in a moment leaped among the lions wild:
The leap was quick, return was quick, he has regained his place,
Then threw the glove, but not with love, right in the lady's face.
"By God!" said Francis, "rightly done!" and he rose from where he sat:
"No love," quoth he, "but vanity, sets love a task like that."
