John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7853
AUTHOR:Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837–1909)
QUOTATION:Before the beginning of years
  There came to the making of man
Time with a gift of tears,
  Grief with a glass that ran,
Pleasure with pain for leaven,
  Summer with flowers that fell,
Remembrance fallen from heaven,
  And Madness risen from hell,
Strength without hands to smite,
  Love that endures for a breath;
Night, the shadow of light,
  And Life, the shadow of death.
ATTRIBUTION:Atalanta in Calydon. Chorus.
