FRANCES ANNE "FANNY" KEMBLE (MRS. BUTLER)
English actress and writer
(1811 - 1893)

Better be cheated to the last,
  Than lose the blessed hope of truth.
      - [Truth]

Better trust all and be deceived,
  And weep that trust, and that deceiving,
    Than doubt one heart that, if believed,
      Had blessed one's life with true believing.
      - [Belief]

Carols of gladness ring from every tree.
      - [Birds]

I know the very difference that lies 'twixt hallowed love and base unholy lust; I know the one is as a golden spur, urging the spirit to all noble aims; the other but a foul and miry pit, o'erthrowing it in midst of its career.
      - [Lust]

Maids must be wives and mothers to fulfill the entire and holiest end of woman's being.
      - [Destiny]

Modesty is a diamond setting to female beauty.
      - [Modesty]

The drama is the looking-glass in which we see the hideousness of vice and the beauties of virtue.
      - [Drama]

What shall I do with all the days and hours
  That must be counted ere I see thy face?
    How shall I charm the interval that lowers
      Between this time and that sweet time of grace?
      - Absence [Absence]

A sacred burden is this life ye bear,
  Look on it, lift it, bear it solemnly,
    Stand up and walk beneath it steadfastly;
      Fail not for sorrow, falter not for sin,
        But onward, upward, till the goal ye win.
      - Lines to the Young Gentlemen leaving the Lennox Academy, Massachusetts
        [Life]

His breath like silver arrows pierced the air,
  The naked earth crouched shuddering at his feet,
    His finger on all flowing waters sweet
      Forbidding lay--motion nor sound was there:--
        Nature was frozen dead,--and still and slow,
          A winding sheet fell o'er her body fair,
            Flaky and soft, from his wide wings of snow.
      - Winter (l. 9) [Winter]
