"Prevail on Dale," I repeated to Swede.

Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,

Friday's child is loving and giving,

But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day,
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.”

Dreams destroyed by self-diagnosis.”

George Orwell
“All the while they were talking the half-remembered rhyme kept running through Winston’s head. Oranges and lemons, say the bells of St. Clement’s, You owe me three farthings, say the bells of St. Martin’s! It was curious, but when you said it to yourself you had the illusion of actually hearing bells, the bells of a lost London that still existed somewhere or other, disguised and forgotten. From one ghostly steeple after another he seemed to hear them pealing forth. Yet so far as he could remember he had never in real life heard church bells ringing.”
George Orwell, 1984

Mirza Sharafat Hussain Beigh
“A poem I may never complete / A prosody that may never have rhythm / A rhyming of broken syllables / A Gazal without her mention / Her incomplete gaze; in spite of my presence / My youth without her love is tainted fruit / The fruit that if eaten is committing sin / My soul is imprisoned in the custody of evil orchard / The orchard of despair instead.”
Mirza Sharafat Hussain Beigh

Mirza Sharafat Hussain Beigh
“It demands desire of Zulykha
Loyalty of Angels
Vehemence of devils
And patience of Prophet
You may too need
God's mouth
To reveal rhyming letters”
