Famous Quote by Thomas Gray

"Yet ah! why should they know their fate,
Since sorrow never comes too late,
And happiness too swiftly flies?
Thought would destroy their paradise.
No more; where ignorance is bliss,
Tis folly to be wise."
Thomas Gray 
Author of Grays Elegy, "On a Distant Prospect of Eton College" 1742
