Lost
 
What though the field be lost!
All is not lost; th’ unconquerable will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield,
And what is else not to be overcome.
        Milton.—Paradise Lost, Book I. Line 105.
  1
Dear is the spot where Christians sleep,
  And sweet the strain which angels pour;
Oh, why should we in anguish weep?
  They are not lost, but gone before.
        Anonymous.—See R. A. Smith’s Edinburgh Harmony, 1829, and Rogers’ Human Life.
  2
Such is the tale, so sad, to memory dear,
Which oft in youth has charm’d my listening ear.
        H. Kirke White.—Clifton Grove, Line 441.
  3
Good Titus could, but Charles could never say,
Of all his royal life, he “lost a day.”
        Duke.—Poem on the Death of Charles II.
  4
“I’ve lost a day”—the prince who nobly cried,
Had been an emperor without his crown.
        Dr. Young.—Night II. Line 99.
  5
This world, ’tis true,
Was made for Cæsar, but for Titus, too;
And which more blest? Who chain’d his country? say,
Or he whose virtue sigh’d to lose a day?
        Pope.—Essay on Man, Epi. IV. Stanza 1.
  6
        The delight of men,
He who the day, when his overflowing hand
Had made no happy heart, concluded lost!
        Thomson.—Liberty.
  7
How hard their lot who neither won nor lost!
        Anonymous.—The Bucks had Dined. (Elegant Extracts.)
