Gilds Quotes

Kindness like light speaks in the air it gilds.
— Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton —

But if sleep it was, of what nature, we can scarcely refrain from asking, are such sleeps as these? Are they remedial measures-trances in which the most galling memories, events that seem likely to cripple life for ever, are brushed with a dark wing which rubs their harshness off and gilds them, even the ugliest, and basest, with a lustre, an incandescence? Has the finger of death to be laid on the tumult of life from time to time lest it rend us asunder? Are we so made that we have to take death in small doses daily or we could not go on with the business of living? And then what strange powers are these that penetrate our most secret ways and change our most treasured possessions without our willing it? Had Orlando, worn out by the extremity of his suffering, died for a week, and then come to life again? And if so, of what nature is death and of what nature life?

— Virginia Woolf

— Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Kindness like light speaks in the air it gilds.

The rising sun complies with our weak sight, First gilds the clouds, then shows his globe of light At such a distance from our eyes, as though He knew what harm his hasty beams would do.

— Edmund Waller

Through all the drama - whether damned or not -Love gilds the scene, and women guide the plot.

— Richard Brinsley Sheridan
