Who hears music feels his solitude peopled at once.

My sun sets to rise again.

Never the time and the place and the loved one all together!

Oh, to be in England now that April’s there.

Ambition is not what man does… but what man would do.

On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven a perfect round.

You should not take a fellow eight years old and make him swear to never kiss the girls.

One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph, Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, sleep to wake.

Perhaps one has to be very old before one learns to be amused rather than shocked.

What Youth deemed crystal, Age finds out was dew.

What of soul was left, I wonder, when the kissing had to stop?

Stung by the splendour of a sudden thought.

White shall not neutralize the black, nor good compensate bad in man, absolve him so: life’s business being just the terrible choice.

Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.

Tis not what man Does which exalts him, but what man Would do!

The moment eternal – just that and no more – When ecstasy’s utmost we clutch at the core While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut, and lips meet!

The aim, if reached or not, makes great the life: Try to be Shakespeare, leave the rest to fate!

What’s a man’s age? He must hurry more, that’s all; Cram in a day, what his youth took a year to hold.

That’s the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over, lest you should think he never could recapture the first fine careless rapture!

Take away love and our earth is a tomb.

So, fall asleep love, loved by me… for I know love, I am loved by thee.

Faultless to a fault.

But what if I fail of my purpose here? It is but to keep the nerves at strain, to dry one’s eyes and laugh at a fall, and baffled, get up and begin again.

A minute’s success pays the failure of years.

Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp. Or what’s a heaven for?

Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.

Love is energy of life.

Fail I alone, in words and deeds? Why, all men strive and who succeeds?

God is the perfect poet.

Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.

How good is man’s life, the mere living! How fit to employ all the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!

I count life just a stuff to try the soul’s strength on.

I give the fight up: let there be an end, a privacy, an obscure nook for me. I want to be forgotten even by God.

I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time.

If you get simple beauty and naught else, you get about the best thing God invents.

Like dogs in a wheel, birds in a cage, or squirrels in a chain, ambitious men still climb and climb, with great labor, and incessant anxiety, but never reach the top.
