An English romantic poet.


(1770 - 1850)

"Faith is a passionate intuition."

"Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present to live better in the future."

"That best portion of a man's life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love."

"The Child is the father of the Man."

"The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly."

"Golf is a day spent in a round of strenuous idleness."

"Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher."

"That though the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower. We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind."

"Wisdom is oftentimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar."

"Is there not an art, a music, and a stream of words that shalt be life, the acknowledged voice of life?"

"The little unremembered acts of kindness and love are the best parts of a person's life."

"The ocean is a mighty harmonist."
