Life has loveliness to sell, all beautiful and splendid things, blue waves whitened on a cliff, soaring fire that sways and sings, and children's faces looking up, holding wonder like a cup.
Beauty, more than bitterness, makes the heart break.
No one worth possessing can be quite possessed.
A hush is over everything, Silent as women wait for love; The world is waiting for the spring.
I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes.
When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise, life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange - my youth.
Wisdom is not acquired save as the result of investigation.
It is strange how often a heart must be broken before the years can make it wise.
Oh who can tell the range of joy or set the bounds of beauty?
I found more joy in sorrow than you could find in joy.
I have no riches but my thoughts. Yet these are wealth enough for me.
Call him wise whose actions, words, and steps are all a clear because to a clear why.
Of my own spirit let me be in sole though feeble mastery.
Though I know he loves me, tonight my heart is sad; his kiss was not so wonderful as all the dreams I had.
There's nothing half so real in life as the things you've done... inexorably, unalterably done.
