Citações Andrew Marvell

„The mind, that ocean where each kind
Does straight its own resemblance find;
Yet it creates, transcending these,
Far other worlds, and other seas;
Annihilating all that's made
To a green thought in a green shade.“

—  Andrew Marvell

The Garden (1650-1652)
Contexto: Meanwhile the mind from pleasure less
Withdraws into its happiness;
The mind, that ocean where each kind
Does straight its own resemblance find;
Yet it creates, transcending these,
Far other worlds, and other seas;
Annihilating all that's made
To a green thought in a green shade.

„Had we but world enough, and time,
This coyness, Lady, were no crime.“

—  Andrew Marvell, To His Coy Mistress

Fonte: To His Coy Mistress (1650-1652)
Contexto: Had we but world enough, and time,
This coyness, Lady, were no crime.
We would sit down and think which way
To walk, and pass our long love's day.

„Thus, though we cannot make our sun
Stand still, yet we will make him run.“

—  Andrew Marvell, To His Coy Mistress

Fonte: To His Coy Mistress (1650-1652)

Our sweetness up into one ball,
And tear our pleasures with rough strife
Thorough the iron gates of life:
Thus, though we cannot make our sun
Stand still, yet we will make him run.
