Meeting
 
  The joy of meeting not unmixed with pain.
Longfellow.    
  1
        In life there are meetings which seem
Like a fate.
Lord Lytton.    
  2
                    Absence, with all its pains,
Is by this charming moment wip’d away.
Thomson.    
  3
  The joys of meeting pay the pangs of absence; else who could bear it?
Rowe.    
  4
  Ah me! the world is full of meetings such as this,—a thrill, a voiceless challenge and reply, and sudden partings after!
Willis.    
  5
        As two floating planks meet and part on the sea,
O friend! so I met and then drifted from thee.
Wm. R. Alger.    
  6
        Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness:
So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.
Longfellow.    
  7
  Sir, you are very welcome to our house; it must appear in other ways than words, therefore I scant this breathing courtesy.
Shakespeare.    
  8
