John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:9633
AUTHOR:Gustave Nadaud (1820–1893)
QUOTATION:I ’m growing old, I’m sixty years;
  I ’ve labored all my life in vain.
In all that time of hopes and fears,
  I ’ve failed my dearest wish to gain.
I see full well that here below
  Bliss unalloyed there is for none
My prayer would else fulfilment know—
  Never have I seen Carcassonne!
ATTRIBUTION:Carcassonne. Translated by John Reuben Thompson. Stanza 1.
