    To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time

    [ranking: 27]
    Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying;And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying.
    The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, The higher he??s a-getting,The sooner will his race be run, And nearer he??s to setting.
    That age is best which is the first, When youth and blood are warmer;But being spent, the worse, and worst Times still succeed the former.
    Then be not coy, but use your time, And while ye may, go marry;For having lost but once your prime, You may forever tarry. Author: Robert Herrick

    The Rainy Day

    [ranking: 11]
    The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;It rains, and the wind is never weary;The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,But at every gust the dead leaves fall,And the day is dark and dreary.
    My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;It rains, and the wind is never weary;My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,And the days are dark and dreary.
    Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;Thy fate is the common fate of all,Into each life some rain must fall,Some days must be dark and dreary. Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    [ranking: 3]
    My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night;But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends?? It gives a lovely light! Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay

    [ranking: 8]
    Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.
    In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.
    Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade,And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid.
    It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. Author: William Ernest Henley

    A Dream Within a Dream

    [ranking: 19]
    Take this kiss upon the brow!And, in parting from you now,Thus much let me avow ??You are not wrong, who deemThat my days have been a dream;Yet if hope has flown awayIn a night, or in a day,In a vision, or in none,Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seemIs but a dream within a dream.
    I stand amid the roarOf a surf-tormented shore,And I hold within my handGrains of the golden sand ??How few! yet how they creepThrough my fingers to the deep,While I weep ?? while I weep!O God! Can I not graspThem with a tighter clasp?O God! can I not saveOne from the pitiless wave?Is all that we see or seemBut a dream within a dream? Author: Edgar Allan Poe

    I'm Nobody! Who Are You?

    [ranking: 4]
    I'm nobody! Who are you?Are you nobody, too?Then there's a pair of us - don't tell!They'd banish us, you know.
    How dreary to be somebody!How public, like a frogTo tell your name the livelong dayTo an admiring bog! Author: Emily Dickinson
