SYDNEY THOMPSON DOBELL
English poet and critic
(1824 - 1874)

It is a zealot's faith that blasts the shrines of the false god, but builds no temple to the true.
      - [Zeal]

It often requires more strength and judgment to resist than to embrace an opportunity. It is better to do nothing than to do other than well.
      - [Opportunity]

Stern duties need not speak sternly. He who stood firm before the thunder worshipped the "still small voice."
      - [Duty]

The secret of pleasure in life, as distinct from its great triumphs of transcendent joy, is to live in a series of small, legitimate successes. By legitimate I mean such as are not accompanied by self-condemnation.
      - [Success]

Trembling lips, tuned to such grief that they say bright words sadly.
      - [Grief]

Unsuccessful emulation is too apt to sink into envy, which of all sins has not even the excuse to offer of temporary gratification.
      - [Emulation]

Sister Simplicitie!
  Sing, sing a song to me,--
    Sing me to sleep!
      Some legend low and long,
        Slow as the summer song
          Of the dull Deep.
      - A Sleep Song [Sleep]

He who, being bold
  For life to come, is false to the past sweet
    Of mortal life, hath kiled the world above.
      For why to live again if not to meet?
        And why to meet if not to meet in love?
          And why in love if not in that dear love of old?
      - Sonnet--To a Friend in Bereavement [Love]
