PHILIP JAMES BAILEY
English poet
(1816 - 1902)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 7    Next Page >> 

Her cheek had the pale pearly pink
  Of sea shells, the world's sweetest tint, as though
    She lived, one-half might deem, on roses sopp'd
      In pearly dew.
      - [Beauty]

Her step is music, and her voice is song.
      - [Grace]

I am tired of looking on what is,
  One might as well see beauty never more,
    As look upon it with an empty eye.
      I would this world were over. I am tired.
      - [Ennui]

I cannot be content with less than heaven.
      - [Heaven]

I run the gauntlet of a file of doubts,
  Each one of which down hurls me to the ground.
      - [Doubt]

If all were rich, gold would be penniless.
      - [Gold]

It is fine to stand upon some lofty mountain thought, and feel the spirit stretch into a view.
      - [Thought]

It is no great misfortune to oblige ungrateful people, but an unsupportable one to be forced to be under an obligation to a scoundrel.
      - [Obligation]

It is sad
  To see the light of beauty wane away,
    Know eyes are dimming, bosoms shrivelling, feet
      Losing their springs, and limbs their lily roundness;
        But it is worse to feel the heart-spring gone,
          To lose hope, care not for the coming thing,
            And feel all things go to decay within us.
      - [Decay]

Let us think less of men and more of God.
      - [God]

Life is as serious a thing as death.
      - [Life]

Life is less than nothing without love.
      - [Love]

Life's but a means unto an end, that end,
  Beginning, mean, and end to all things--God.
      - [Life]

Long, glorious locks, which drop upon thy cheek like gold-hued cloud-flakes on the rosy morn.
      - [Hair]

Look on the bee upon the wing 'mong flowers;
  How brave, how bright his life! then mark, him hiv'd,
    Cramp'd, cringing in his self-built, social cell,
      Thus it is in the world-hive; most where men
        Lie deep in cities as in drifts.
      - [Bees]

Love is the art of hearts, and heart of arts.
      - [Love]

Man is a military animal, glories in gunpowder, and loves parade.
      - [Military]

Man is one; and he hath one great heart. It is thus we feel, with a gigantic throb athwart the sea, each other's rights and wrongs; thus are we men.
      - [Sympathy]

Men might be better if we better deemed of them.
      - [Liberality]

Mind and night will meet, though in silence, like forbidden lovers.
      - [Night]

My favored temple is an humble heart.
      - [Humility]

Naught but God
  Can satisfy the soul.
      - [God]

Necessity, like electricity, is in ourselves and all things, and no more without us than within us.
      - [Necessity]

Never respect men merely for their riches, but rather for their philanthropy; we do not value the sun for its height, but for its use.
      - [Riches]

None but the brave and beautiful can love.
      - [Love]
