Alexander Pushkin - Eugene Onegin quotes in English

  1. But even friendship like our heroes
  2. But flaming youth in all it\'s madness
  3. But I was born for peaceful roaming
  4. But whom to love?
  5. Days when I came to flower serenely
  6. Dearer to me than a host
  7. Depression still kept guard on him
  8. He filled a shelf with a small army of books
  9. I love a friendly chat...
  10. It\'s a lucky man
  11. I\'ve come to prefer the more steady Bordeaux
  12. My dreams, my dreams!
  13. People are so like their first mother Eve
  14. Play interests me very much
  15. The less we love her when we woo her
  16. The wondrous moment of our meeting...
  17. Thus heaven\'s gift to us is this
  18. Thus people--so it seems to me
  19. To love all ages yield surrender
  20. We still, alas, cannot forestall it
  21. We’ve got to have forbidden fruit...

But I was born for peaceful roaming

“55 But I was born for peaceful roaming, For country calm and lack of strife; My lyre sings! And in the gloaming My fertile fancies spring to life. I give myself to harmless pleasures And far niente rules my leisures: Each morning early I’m awake To wander by the lonely lake Or seek some other sweet employment: I read a little, often sleep, For fleeting fame I do not weep. And was it not in past enjoyment Of shaded, idle times like this, I spent my days of deepest bliss?”

I've come to prefer the more steady Bordeaux

“.. and these days I've come to prefer the more steady Bordeaux. I am no longer up to champagne from Ay: it's like a mistress: sparkling, flighty, vivacious, wayward - and not to be trusted. But Bordeaux is like a friend who in time of trouble and misfortune stands by us always, anywhere, ready to give us help, or just to share our quiet leisure. So raise your glasses - to our friend Bordeaux!”
