From Quotes
Happiness is understanding that friendship is more precious than mere things, more precious than getting your own way, more precious than being in situations where true principles are not at stake.

David Macbeth Moir, (January 5, 1798 - July 6, 1851), Scottish physician and writer, was born at Musselburgh. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, taking his degree in 1816. He contributed both prose and verse to the magazines, and particularly, with the signature of Delta, to Blackwood's Magazine. A collection of his poetry was edited in 1852 by Thomas Aird.


  • To me, through every season dearest;
    In every scene, by day, by night,
    Thou, present to my mind appearest
    A quenchless star, forever bright;
    My solitary sole delight:
    Where’er I am, by shore, at sea,
    I think of thee.
    • When Thou at Eve Are Roaming.
