More Commonplace Book Fun

From Charles Darwin's "pro" list in favor of marriage when he was a young man:

"A constant companion, one who will feel interested in one (a friend in old age)-- object to be beloved and play with."

Pop song constantly playing on Zimbabwe radio when I was there many years ago:

"Be patient

You will find her

Be like a vulture."

French 14th century motto, attributed to Gace de la Vigne:

"De chiens, d'oyseaux, d'armes, d'amours, pour une joie, cent doleurs."

[In hounds, hawks, arms, and love, for one joy, a hundred sorrows]
