Bubba & Will
Adam Lindsay (Lionel Gordon) Gordon. (1833–1870)
"Life is mostly froth and bubble;
Two things stand like stone:—
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in our own."
Ye weary Wayfarer. Finis Exoptatus.
James Maurice Thompson (1844–1901)
"Bubble, bubble, flows the stream
Like an old tune through a dream."
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
"Bubbles, bubbles everywhere, but not a drop to drink . . . yet."
Nixon Waterman (1859– ?)
"Though life is made up of mere bubbles,
’T is better than many aver,
For while we’ve a whole lot of troubles,
The most of them never occur.
Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809–1894)
"It went to pieces all at once—
All at once and nothing first,
Just as bubbles do when they burst. "
Francis Bacon (1561–1626)
"The world ’s a bubble, and the life of man
Less than a span."
"I'd much rather love a bubble
than to live in rubber rubble."
Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910). Anna Karenin.
"In infinite time, in infinite matter, in infinite space, is formed a bubble-organism, and that bubble lasts a while and bursts, and that bubble is Me."
Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875)
The Little Sea-Maid
And she put a wreath of white lilies in the little maid’s hair, but each flower was half a pearl; and the old lady let eight great oysters attach themselves to the Princess’ tail, in token of her high rank.
“But that hurts so!” said the little Sea-maid.
“Yes, pride must suffer pain,” replied the old lady.
O how glad she would have been to shake off all the tokens of rank and lay aside the heavy wreath! Her red flowers in the garden suited her better; but she could not help it. “Farewell!” she said, and then she rose, light and clear as a water-bubble, up through the sea.
