A night of tears! for the gusty rain
  Had ceased, but the eaves were dripping yet;
    And the moon look'd forth, as tho' in pain,
      With her face all white and wet.
      - The Wanderer (bk. II, The Portrait)
        [Night]

They only fall, that strive to move,
  Or lose, that care to keep.
      - The Wanderer (bk. III, Futility, st. 6)
        [Destiny]

The ages roll
  Forward; and forward with them, draw my soul
    Into time's infinite sea.
      And to be glad, or sad, I care no more;
        But to have done, and to have been, before I cease to do and be.
      - The Wanderer
         (bk. IV, A Confession and Apology, st. 9)
        [Age]

Weary the cloud falleth out of the sky,
  Dreary the leaf lieth low.
    All things must come to the earth by and by,
      Out of which all things grow.
      - The Wanderer--Earth's Havings (bk. III)
        [Change]

Unseen hands delay
  The coming of what oft seems close in ken,
    And, contrary, the moment, when we say
      "'Twill never come!" comes on us even then.
      - Thomas Munster to Martin Luther (l. 382)
        [Destiny]

I loved you ere I knew you; know you now,
  And having known you, love you better still.
      - Vanini [Love]

O be very sure
  That no man will learn anything at all,
    Unless he first will learn humility.
      - Vanini (l. 327) [Humility]

The sylphs and ondines
  And the sea-kings and queens
    Long ago, long ago, on the waves built a city,
      As lovely as seems
        To some bard in his dreams,
          The soul of his latest love-ditty.
      - Venice [Venice]

When time is flown, how it fled
  It is better neither to ask nor tell,
    Leave the dead moments to bury their dead.
      - Wanderer
         (bk. IV, Two out of the Crowd, st. 17)
        [Time]
