"The Prophet's words were true;
  The mouth of Ali is the golden door
    Of Wisdom."
      When his friends to Ali bore
        These words, he smiled and said: "And should they ask
          The same until my dying day, the task
            Were easy; for the stream from Wisdom's well,
              Which God supplies, is inexhaustible."
      - The Wisdom of Ali [Wisdom]

Learn to live, and live to learn,
  Ignorance like a fire doth burn,
    Little tasks make large return.
      - To My Daughter [Learning]

Mysterious Flood,--that through the silent sands
  Hast wandered, century on century,
    Watering the length of great Egyptian lands,
      Which were not, but for thee.
      - To the Nile [Nile River]

And the wind that saddens, the sea that gladdens,
  Are singing the selfsame strain.
      - Wind and the Sea [Pain]

There's a pang in all rejoicing,
  And a joy in the heart of pain;
    And the wind that saddens, the sea that gladdens,
      Are singing the selfsame strain.
      - Wind and the Sea [Pain]
