John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7863
AUTHOR:Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837–1909)
QUOTATION:From too much love of living,
  From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving
  Whatever gods may be
That no man lives forever,
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
  Winds somewhere safe to sea.
ATTRIBUTION:The Garden of Proserpine.
