HELEN HUNT (HELEN HUNT JACKSON)
American writer and poet
(1830 - 1885)

Love has a tide.
      - [Frailty]

Now and then one sees a face which has kept its smile pure and undefiled. It is a woman's face usually; often a face which has trace of great sorrow all over it, till the smile breaks. Such a smile transfigures: such a smile, if the artful but knew it, is the greatest weapon a face can have.
      - [Face]

"O bees sweet bees!" I said; "that nearest field
  Is shining white with fragrant immortelles,
    Fly swiftly there and drain those honey wells."
      - [Bees]

Pity and friendship seek different habitations.
      - [Pity]

She is not a brilliant woman; she is not even an intellectual one; but there is such a thing as a genius for affection, and she has it. It has been good for her husband that he married her.
      - [Wedlock]

The lands are lit with all the autumn blaze of golden-rod, and everywhere the purple asters nod and bend and wave and flit.
      - [Autumn]

The tongue is more easily controlled than the features of the face; and though the heart may be secret, the face is transparent.
      - [Physiognomy]

When the baby died,
  On every side
    Rose strangers' voices, hard and harsh and loud.
      The baby was not wrapped in any shroud.
        The mother made no sound. Her head was bowed
          That men's eyes might not see
            Her misery.
      - [Death of Babies]
