Thomas Moore Quote
Intercepted Letters; or The Two-Penny Post Bag, VI (1813).
“When time who steals our years away Shall steal our pleasures too, The mem'ry of the past will stay And half our joys renew.”
The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore (1863 edition), p. 177
“Come, come, said Tom's father, at
your time of life,
There's no longer excuse for thus
playing the rake--
It is time you should think, boy, of
taking a wife.
Why, so it is father--whose wife
shall I take?”
