Creative Quotations from . . .
Richard Lovelace
(1618-1658) born on
English poet. He is remembered almost solely for two extremely graceful, melodic, and much-quoted lyrics, "To Althea, from Prison" and "To Lucasta, Going to the Wars."
Stone walls do not a prison make
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage.

If I have freedom in my love, And in my soul am free,
-- Angels alone that soar above, Enjoy such liberty.
Lady, it is already morn,
And 'twas last night I swore to thee
That fond impossibility.
Yet this inconstancy is such,
As you too shall adore;
I could not love thee, Dear, so much
Loved I not honour more.
Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast, and quiet mind,
To war and arms I fly.
