[Unlike Modern Pills, These Hard Antimony Pills Didn't Dissolve In The Intestines, And The Pills Were Considered So Valuable That People Rooted Through Fecal Matter To Retrieve And Reuse Them. Some Lucky Families Even Passed Down Laxatives From Father To Son. Perhaps For This Reason, Antimony Found Heavy Work As A Medicine, Although It's Actually Toxic. Mozart Probably Died From Taking Too Much To Combat A Severe Fever.]

Harold Monro Quotes

"Overheard on a Saltmarsh"Nymph, nymph, what are your beads?Green glass, goblin. Why do you stare at them?Give them me.No.Give them me. Give them me.No.Then I will howl all night in the reeds,Lie in the mud and howl for them.Goblin, why do you love them so?They are better than stars or water,Better than voices of winds that sing,Better than any mans fair daughter,Your green glass beads on a silver ring.Hush, I stole them out of the moon.Give me your beads, I want them.No.I will howl in the deep lagoonFor your green glass beads, I love them so.Give them me. Give them.No."

Quotes About Nations Coming Together

"Fate, with its mysterious and inexorable patience, was slowly bringing together these two beings charged, like thunder-clouds, with electricity, with the latent forces of passion, and destined to meet and mingle in a look as clouds do in a lightning-flash. So much has been made in love-stories of the power of a glance that we have ended by undervaluing it. We scarcely dare say in these days that two persons fell in love because their eyes met. Yet that is how one falls in love and in no other way. What remains is simply what remains, and it comes later. Nothing is more real than the shock two beings sustain when that spark flies between them." - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Flowers In Summer

"Now the day is done,Now the shepherd sunDrives his white flocks from the sky;Now the flowers restOn their mothers breast,Hushed by her low lullaby.Now the glowworms glance,Now the fireflies dance,Under fern-boughs green and high;And the western breezeTo the forest treesChants a tuneful lullaby.Now mid shadows deepFalls blessed sleep,Like dew from the summer sky;And the whole earth dreams,In the moons soft beams,While night breathes a lullaby.Now, birdlings, rest,In your wind-rocked nest,Unscared by the owls shrill cry;For with folded wingsLittle Brier swings,And singeth your lullaby." - Author: Louisa May Alcott

Quotes About Heat Stress

"The Persian VersionTruth-loving Persians do not dwell uponThe trivial skirmish fought near Marathon.As for the Greek theatrical traditionWhich represents that summers expeditionNot as a mere reconnaisance in forceBy three brigades of foot and one of horse(Their left flank covered by some obsoleteLight craft detached from the main Persian fleet)But as a grandiose, ill-starred attemptTo conquer Greece - they treat it with contempt;And only incidentally refuteMajor Greek claims, by stressing what reputeThe Persian monarch and the Persian nationWon by this salutary demonstration:Despite a strong defence and adverse weatherAll arms combined magnificently together." - Author: Robert Graves
