WILLIAM WETMORE STORY
American lawyer, sculptor and author
(1819 - 1895)

I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the battle of life,
  The hymn of the wounded, the beaten who died overwhelmed in the strife;
    Not the jubilant song of the victors for whom the resounding acclaim
      Of nations was lifted in chorus whose brows wore the chaplet of fame,
        But the hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart,
          Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desparate part.
      - Io Victis [Conquest]

Of every noble work the silent part is best,
  Of all expression, that which cannot be expressed.
      - The Unexpressed [Silence]

The Poet in his Art
  Must intimate the whole, and say the smallest part.
      - The Unexpressed [Poets]

Oh! faint delicious spring-time violet,
  Thine odor like a key,
    Turns noiselessly in memory's wards to let
      A thought of sorrow free.
      - The Violet [Violets]
