Эдуард Юнг — английский поэт-масон, зачинатель кладбищенской поэзии эпохи сентиментализма.


„Время, затраченное впустую, есть существование; время, употребленное с пользой, есть жизнь.“

„Отсрочка — это воровка времени.“


„Friendship is the wine of life.“

„Affliction is a good man's shining time.“

„A foe to God was never true friend to man“

„We are all born originals - why is it so many of us die copies?“

„At thirty a man suspects himself a fool;
Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan;
At fifty chides his infamous delay,
Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve;
In all the magnanimity of thought
Resolves; and re-resolves; then dies the same.“
Night Thoughts: Or, The Complaint And The Consolation

„The first sure symptom of a mind in health Is rest of heart and pleasure felt at home.“


„Too low they build, who build beneath the stars.“

„For her own breakfast she'll project a scheme,
Nor take her tea without a strategem.“
Poetical Works of the Rev. Dr. Edward Young

„Procrastination is the thief of time: Year after year it steals, till all are fled, And to the mercies of a moment leaves The vast concerns of an eternal scene“

„Some for renown, on scraps of learning dote, /And think they grow immortal as they quote.“


„By night an atheist half believes in God.“

„Think naught a trifle, though it small appear:
Small sands the mountain, moments make the year,
And trifles life.“

„Procrastination is the thief of time.“

„Those who build beneath the stars build too low.“
