Who Wrote?

1. "Every night and every morn Some to misery are born; Every morn and every night Some are born to sweet delight; Some are born to sweet delight, Some are born to endless night.

Joy and woe are woven fine, A clothing for the soul divine; Under every grief and pine Runs a joy with silken twine.

It is right it should be so; Man was made for joy and woe; And when this we rightly know, Safely through the world we go."

2. "Finding myself the constant object of amused attention was hateful to me yet I don't remember feeling the slightest embarrassment at arriving from time to time at school with my upper half awash with tears and my lower half dripping with excrement."
