Dreams in their development have breath,
  And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy,
    They have a weight upon our waking thoughts,
      They take a weight from off our waking toils,
        They do divide our being.
      - [Dreams]

Eden revives in the first kiss of love.
      - [Kisses]

Ennui is a growth of English root, though nameless in our language.
      - [Ennui]

Even as a broken mirror, which the glass
  In every fragment multiplies, and makes
    A thousand images of one that was
      The same, and still the more, the more it breaks.
      - [Contention]

Every fool describes in these bright days his wondrous journey to some foreign court, and spawns his quarto, and demands your praise.
      - [Authorship]

Existence may be borne, and the deep root
  Of life and sufferance make its firm abode
    In bare and desolate bosoms: mute
      The camel labors with the heaviest load,
        And the wolf dies in silence: Not bestow'd
          In vain should such examples be; if they,
            Things of ignoble or of savage mood,
              Endure and shrink not, we of nobler clay
                May temper it to bear--it is but for a day.
      - [Fortitude]

Experience has taught me that the only friends we can call our own, who can have no change, are those over whom the grave has closed; the seal of death is the only seal of friendship.
      - [Friends]

Experience, that chill touchstone whose sad proof reduces all things from their hue.
      - [Experience]

Fair Italy!
  Thou art the garden of the world, the home
    Of all Art yields, and Nature can decree,
      Even in thy desert, what is like to thee?
        Thy very weeds are beautiful, thy waste
          More rich than other climes fertility;
            Thy wreck a glory, and thy ruin graced
              With an immaculate charm which cannot be defac'd.
      - [Italy]

Fame is the thirst of youth.
      - [Fame]

Famed
  For every branch of every science known.
      - [Proverbs]

Famish'd people must be slowly nurst,
  And fed by spoonfuls, else they always burst.
      - [Eating]

Famished people must be slowly nursed,
  And fed by spoonfuls, else they always burst.
      - [Hunger]

Far along,
  From peak to peak the rattling crags among,
    Leaps the live thunder.
      - [Thunder]

Farewell!
  For in that word,--that fatal word,--howe'er
    We promise--hope--believe,--there breathes despair.
      - [Farewell]

Farewell! if ever fondest prayer
  For other's weal availed on high,
    Mine will not all be lost in air
      But waft thy name beyond the sky.
      - [Farewell]

"Farewell, my Spain! a long farewell!" he cried.
  "Perhaps I may revisit thee no more,
    But die, as many an exiled heart hath died,
      Of its own thirst to see again thy shore."
      - [Exile]

Flowers whose wild odors breathe but agonies.
      - [Passion]

Foes, friends, men, women, now are nought to me
  But dreams of what has been, no more to be.
      - [Proverbs]

For Ennui is a growth of English root,
  Though nameless in our language:--we retort
    The fact for words, and let the French translate
      That awful Yawn which Sleep cannot abate.
      - [Ennui]

For glances beget ogles, ogles sighs,
  Sighs wishes, wishes words, and words a letter.
      - [Proverbs]

For no one cares for matrimonial cooings,
  There's nothing wrong in a connubial kiss.
      - [Proverbs]

For over-warmth, if false, is worse than truth.
      - [Proverbs]

For violets plucked, the sweetest showers will ne'er make grow again.
      - [Chastity]

For without transformation
  Men become wolves on every slight occasion.
      - [Proverbs]
