Affliction's sons are brothers in distress; A brother to relieve, how exquisite the bliss!
More Quotes from Robert Burns:O happy is that man, an' blest!
By night, by day, a-field, at hame,
The thoughts o' thee my breast inflame:
And aye I muse and sing thy name-
I only live to love thee.
The poor inhabitant below Was quick to learn and wise to know And keenly felt the friendly glow And softer flame But thoughtless follies laid him low, And stain'd his name.
Fell source o' a' my woe and grief!
What sparkling jewels glance, man!
With woe I nightly vigils keep,
Beneath thy wan, unwarming beam;
And mourn, in lamentation deep,
How life and love are all a dream!
