Henry Lee III quotes

  • We had our thing. It is a really good memory but now we're older. Things change.

  • Growing up in Poland, I didn't have the experience of going to Disneyland as a child, so I don't have any childhood memories connected to it, good or bad.

  • We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

  • Holiness of heart and life. This is not the perfection of the human nature, but the holiness of the divine nature dwelling within.

  • No matter how strong a condom is, it won't protect you from a broken heart.

  • When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, `Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free.' But I was one-and-twenty No use to talk to me. When I was one-and-twenty I heard him say again, `The heart out of the bosom Was never given in vain; 'Tis paid with sighs a plenty And sold for endless rue.' And I am two-and-twenty And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

  • I sought them far and found them, The sure, the straight, the brave, The hearts I lost my own to, The souls I could not save They braced their belts about them, They crossed in ships the sea, They sought and found six feet of ground, And there they died for me.

  • Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies, But keep your fancy free.

  • With rue my heart is laden For golden friends I had, For many a rose-lipped maiden And many a lightfoot lad.

  • He would not stay for me, and who can wonder? He would not stay for me to stand and gaze. I shook his hand, and tore my heart in sunder, And went with half my life about my ways.
