Edward Young was an English poet, best remembered for Night-Thoughts, a series of philosophical writings in blank verse, reflecting his state of mind following several bereavements. It was one of the most popular poems of the century, influencing Goethe and Edmund Burke, among many others, with its notable illustrations by William Blake.
Young, Edward Quotes
Tomorrow is a satire on today, And shows its weakness.
A soul without reflection, like a pile Without inhabitant, to ruin runs.
By all means use some time to be alone.
Too low they build who build below the skies.
