There is only one writer in whom I find something that reminds me of the directness of style which is found in the Bible. It is Shakespeare.
      - [Shakespeare]

Thought is invisible nature.
      - [Thought]

Wherever they burn books, they will also, in the end, burn people.

Yes, we ought to forgive our enemies, but not until they are hanged.

You should only attempt to borrow from those who have but few of this world's goods, as their chests are not of iron, and they are, besides, anxious to appear wealthier than they really are.

No talent, but yet a character.
  [Ger., Kein talent, doch ein Charakter.]

The gazelles so gentle and clever
  Skip lightly in frolicsome mood.

The spring's already at the gate
  With looks my care beguiling;
    The country round appeareth straight
      A flower-garden smiling.
      - Book of Songs--Catherine (no. 6) [Spring]

And the dancing has begun now,
  And the dancers whirl round gaily
    In the waltz's giddy mazes,
      And the ground beneath them trembles.

Like a wedding-song all-melting
  Sings the nightingale, the dear one.

Glow-worms on the ground are moving,
  As if in the torch-dance circling.

The violets prattle and titter,
  And gaze on the stars high above.
      - Book of Songs--Lyrical Interlude (9)

The lotus flower is troubled
  At the sun's resplendent light;
    With sunken head and sadly
      She dreamily waits for the night.
      - Book of Songs--Lyrical Interlude (no. 10)

A lonely fir-tree is standing
  On a northern barren height;
    It sleeps, and the ice and snow-drift
      Cast round it a garment of white.
      - Book of Songs--Lyrical Interlude (no. 34)

The Blossoms and leaves in plenty
  From the apple tree fall each day;
    The merry breezes approach them,
      And with them merrily play.

The swan in the pool is singing,
  And up and down doth he steer,
    And, singing gently ever,
      Dips under the water clear.

The eyes of spring, so azure,
  Are peeping from the ground;
    They are the darling violets,
      That I in nosegays bound.
      - Book of Songs--New Spring (13) [Violets]

The slender water-lily
  Peeps dreamingly out of the lake;
    The moon, oppress'd with love's sorrow,
      Looks tenderly down for her sake.

The beauteous eyes of the spring's fair night
  With comfort are downward gazing.

If thou lookest on the lime-leaf,
  Thou a heart's form will discover;
    Therefore are the lindens ever
      Chosen seats of each fond lover.

Thy letter sent to prove me,
  Inflicts no sense of wrong;
    No longer wilt thou love me,--
      Thy letter, though is long.

Sweet May hath come to love us,
  Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
    And through the blue heavens above us
      The very clouds move on.
