by Shelley, Percy Bysshe
...ted; thou shouldst now depart!
A light is passed from the revolving year,
And man, and woman; and what still is dear
Attracts to crush, repels to make thee wither.
The soft sky smiles, -the low wind whispers near:
'Tis Adonais calls! oh, hasten thither,
No more let Life divide what Death can join together.

That Light whose smile kindles the Universe,
That Beauty in which all things work and move,
That Benediction which the eclipsing Curse
Of birth can quen...Read More

...ption; I have seen her honored and worshipped in different ways and manners." 

She answered, "Beauty is that which attracts your soul, and that which loves to give and not to receive. When you meet Beauty, you feel that the hands deep within your inner self are stretched forth to bring her into the domain of your heart. It is the magnificence combined of sorrow and joy; it is the Unseen which you see, and the Vague which you understand, and the Mute which you hea...Read More

by Gluck, Louise>
Like anyone, I have my dreams.
But I've learned to hide them,
To protect myself
From fulfillment: all happiness
Attracts the Fates' anger.
They are sisters, savages--
In the end they have
No emotion but envy....Read More

by Pope, Alexander
...all, and in it 
Catch, ere she change, the Cynthia of this minute. 

Rufa, whose eye quick-glancing o'er the Park, 
Attracts each light gay meteor of a Spark, 
Agrees as ill with Rufa studying Locke, 
As Sappho's diamonds with her dirty smock; 
Or Sappho at her toilet's greasy task, 
With Sappho fragrant at an evening Masque: 
So morning Insects that in muck begun, 
Shine, buzz, and flyblow in the setting sun. 

How soft is Silia! fearful to offend; 
The Frail one's a...Read More

...ut these please the soul well. 

This is the female form; 
A divine nimbus exhales from it from head to foot; 
It attracts with fierce undeniable attraction! 
I am drawn by its breath as if I were no more than a helpless vapor—all falls aside but
 myself and it;
Books, art, religion, time, the visible and solid earth, the atmosphere and the clouds,
 and what was expected of heaven or fear’d of hell, are now consumed; 
Mad filaments, ungovernable shoots play out of it—th...Read More

...ed mood? 
Canst thou shine now, then darkle, 
And being latent, feel thyself no less? 
As, when the all-worshipped moon attracts the eye, 
The river, hill, stems, foliage are obscure, 
Yet envies none, none are unenviable.'...Read More

by Milton, John
...f truth
By saving doctrine, and from error lead
To know, and, knowing, worship God aright,
Is yet more kingly. This attracts the soul,
Governs the inner man, the nobler part;
That other o'er the body only reigns,
And oft by force—which to a generous mind
So reigning can be no sincere delight. 
Besides, to give a kingdom hath been thought
Greater and nobler done, and to lay down
Far more magnanimous, than to assume.
Riches are needless, then, both for themselves,
A...Read More

by Taylor, Ann
...1 Whatever 'tis, whose beauty here below
2 Attracts thee thus and makes thee stream and flow,
3 And wind and curl, and wink and smile,
4 Shifting thy gate and guile;

5 Though thy close commerce nought at all imbars
6 My present search, for eagles eye not stars,
7 And still the lesser by the best
8 And highest good is blest;

9 Yet, seeing all things that subsist and be,
10 Have their commissions fro...Read More

by von Goethe, Johann Wolfgang
While from mount unto mount
Hovers the spirit eterne,
Life eternal foreboding.

Sideways a roof's pleasant shade
Attracts thee,
And a look that promises coolness
On the maidenly threshold.
There refresh thee! And, maiden,
Give me this foaming draught also,
Give me this health-laden look!

Down, now! quicker still, down!
See where the sun sets
Ere he sets, ere old age
Seizeth me in the morass,
Ere my toothless jaws mumble,
And my useless limbs totter;
While drunk wi...Read More

...s the fair CLEONE's Soul. 
'Tis vain to boast of Rules or labour'd Art; 
I miss the Look that captivates my Heart, 
Attracts my Love, and tender Thoughts inspires; 
Nor can my Breast be warm'd by common Fires; 
Nor can ARDELIA love but where she first admires. 
Like Jupiter's, thy Head was sure in Pain 
When this Virago struggl'd in thy Brain; 
And strange it is, thou hast not made her wield 
A mortal Dart, or penetrating Shield, 
Giving that Hand of disproportion'd s...Read More

by Field, Eugene
...a business deal
And all your art is good fuhr nein
Beyond the point--"Wie viel."

It matters not what game or prey
Attracts your greedy eyes--
You must pursue the good old way
If you would win the prize;
It is to get a titled mate
All run down at the heel,
If you inquire of stock effete,
"Comme bien" or "Wie viel."

So he is wise who envieth not
A wealth of foreign speech,
Since with two phrases may be got
Whatever's in his reach;
For Europe is a soulless shrine
In w...Read More
