In the parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
      - Locksley Hall (l. 129) [Government]

Love took up the harp of Life, and smote on all the chords with might;
  Smote the chord of Self, that, trembling, pass'd in music out of sight.
      - Locksley Hall (l. 33) [Self-examination]

Many a night I saw the Pleiads, rising thro' the mellow shade
  Glitter like a swarm of fireflies tangled in a silver braid.
      - Locksley Hall (l. 9) [Fireflies : Stars]

With a little hoard of maxims preaching down a daughter's heart.
      - Locksley Hall (l. 94) [Preaching]

And our spirits rushed together at the touching of the lips.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 19) [Kisses]

As the husband is the wife is; thou art mated with a clown,
  As the grossness of his nature will have weight to drag thee down.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 24) [Matrimony]

He will hold thee, when his passion shall have spent its novel force,
  Something better than his dog, a little dearer than his horse.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 25) [Passion]

As the many-winter'd crow that leads the clanging rookery home.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 34) [Crows]

That a sorrow's crown or sorrow is remember happier things.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 38) [Sorrow]

But the jingling of the guinea helps the hurt that Honor feels.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 53) [Money]

Yet I doubt not thro' the ages one increasing purpose runs,
  And the thoughts of men are widened with the process of the suns.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 69) [Thought]

What is that to him that reaps not harvest of his youthful joys,
  Though the deep heart of existence best forever like a boy's?
      - Locksley Hall (st. 70) [Youth]

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 71) [Knowledge]

Shall it not be scorn to me to harp on such a moulder'd string?
  I am shamed through all my nature to have lov'd so slight a thing.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 74) [Love]

Weakness to be wroth with weakness! woman's pleasure, woman's pain--
  Nature made them blinder motions bounded in a shallower brain.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 75) [Weakness]

Woman is the lesser man.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 76) [Women]

In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish'd dove;
  In the Spring a Young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 9) [Spring]

Not in vain the distance beacons. Forward, forward let us range.
  Let the great world spin forever down the ringing grooves of change.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 91) [Change]

Better fifty years of Europe than a cycle of Cathay.
      - Locksley Hall (st. 92) [Choice]

Charm us, orator, till the lion look no larger than the cat.
      - Locksley Hall Sixth Years After (l. 112)

She with all the charm of woman,
  She with all the breadth of man.
      - Locksley Hall Sixth Years After (l. 48)

Is there evil but on earth? Or pain in every people sphere?
  Well, be grateful for the sounding watchword "Evolution" here.
      - Locksley Hall Sixty Years After (l. 198)

Evolution ever climbing after some ideal good
  And Reversion ever dragging Evolution in the mud.
      - Locksley Hall Sixty Years After (l. 200)

Nor is he the wisest man who never proved himself a fool.
      - Locksley Hall Sixty Years After (st. 124)

Fires that shook me once, but now to silent ashes fall'n away.
  Cold upon the dead volcano sleeps the gleam of dying day.
      - Locksley Hall Sixty Years After (st. 21)
