EPES SARGENT
American journalist, writer and poet
(1813 - 1880)

My purse is very slim, and very few
  The acres that I number;
    But I am seldom stupid, never blue,
      My riches are an honest heart and true,
        And quiet slumber.
      - [Riches]

Republics, like individuals, who are benefited by personal sacrifices, are proverbially ungrateful.
      - [Republic]

The human soul is like a bird that is born in a cage. Nothing can deprive it of its natural longings, or obliterate the mysterious remembrance of its heritage.
      - [Soul]

There is a just Latin axiom, that he who seeks a reason for everything subverts reason.
      - [Reason]

True poetry, like the religious prompting itself, springs from the emotional side of a man's complex nature, and is ever in harmony with his highest intuitions and aspirations.
      - [Poetry]

A life on the ocean wave!
  A home on the rolling deep;
    Where the scattered waters rave,
      And the winds their revels keep!
      - Life on the Ocean Wave [Ocean]

The whole east was flecked
  With flashing streaks and shafts of amethyst,
    While a light crimson mist
      Went up before the mounting luminary,
        And all the strips of cloud began to vary
          Their hues, and all the zenith seemed to ope
            As if to show a cope beyond the cope!
      - Sunrise at Sea [Sunrise]
