Number of Quotes: 3
I must go in, the fog is rising.
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
Old age comes on suddenly, and not gradually as is thought.
