“Thought and theory must precede all salutary action; yet action is nobler in itself than either thought or theory”
“Action is transitory a step, a blow, The motion of a muscle, this way or that 'Tis done, and in the after-vacancy We wonder at ourselves like men betrayed”
“We live by admiration, hope and love; and even as these are well and wisely fixed, in dignity of being we ascend”
“Deprivation is for me what daffodils were for Wordsworth.”
“Let simple Wordsworth chime his childish verse, / And brother Coleridge lull the babe at nurse.”
“For oft, when on my couch I lieIn vacant or in pensive mood,They flash upon that inward eyeWhich is the bliss of solitude;And then my heart with pleasure fills,And dances with the daffodils.”
“She gave me eyes, she gave me ears;And humble cares, and delicate fears;A heart, the fountain of sweet tears;And love and thought and joy.”
