talking to those who do not WISH to hear it.

Samuel Butler

Death is not the worst thing; rather, when one who craves death cannot attain even that WISH.

Sophocles

Happy the man, whose WISH and care
A few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air
In his own ground.
Pope

True to the kindred points of Heaven and Home.

other than wine.

William Shakespeare

I WISH I hadn’t broke that dish,
I WISH I was a moviestar,

That life was like the movies are.

A.P. Herbert

J. R. R. Tolkien

If any man WISH to write in a clear style, let him be first clear in his thoughts; and if any would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

If we WISH to know the force of human genius, we
should read Shakespeare, if we WISH to see the
insignificance of human learning, we must study his
commentators.

If you cannot mould yourself as you would WISH, how
can you expect other people to be entirely to your
liking?

Thomas A. Kempis
