Stately Spring! whose robe-folds are valleys, whose breast-bouquet is gardens, and whose blush is a vernal evening.
      - [Spring]

Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
      - [Character]

Suffering is my gain; I bow
  To my heavenly Father's will,
    And receive it hushed and still:
      Suffering is my worship now.
      - [Suffering]

Suns are sunflowers of a higher light.
      - [Sun]

Tears of joy are the dew in which the sun of righteousness is mirrored.
      - [Tears]

Tears soothe suffering eyes.
      - [Tears]

That season of childhood, when the soul, on the rainbow bridge of fancy, glides along, dry-shod, over the walls and ditches of this lower earth.
      - [Childhood : Children]

The apparently irreconcilable dissimilarity between our wishes and our means, between our hearts and this world, remains a riddle.
      - [Wishes]

The book that a person is beginning to create or design contains within itself half a life, and God only knows what an expanse of futurity also.
      - [Authorship]

The clew of our destiny, wander where we will, lies at the cradle foot.
      - [Children]

The contemplation of night should lead to elevating rather than to depressing ideas. Who can fix his mind on transitory and earthly things, in presence of those glittering myriads of worlds; and who can dread death or solitude in the midst of this brilliant, animated universe, composed of countless suns and worlds, all full of light and life and motion?
      - [Night]

The darkness of death is like the evening twilight; it makes all objects appear more lovely to the dying.
      - [Death]

The echo of the nest-life, the voice of our modest, fairer, holier soul, is audible only in a sorrow-darkened bosom, as the nightingales warble when one veils their cage.
      - [Sorrow]

The fates glide with linked hands over life.
      - [Fate]

The feelings, like flowers and butterflies, last longer the later they are delayed.
      - [Emotion]

The grandest of heroic deeds are those which are performed within four walls and in domestic privacy.
      - [Domesticity]

The great shadow and profile of day.
      - [Night]

The guardian angel of life sometimes flies so high that man cannot see it; but he always is looking down upon us, and will soon hover nearer to us.
      - [Angels]

The gymnasium of running, walking on stilts, climbing, etc., steels and makes hardy single powers and muscles, but dancing, like a corporeal poesy, embellishes, exercises, and equalizes all the muscles at once.
      - [Dancing]

The happiness life consists, like the day, not in single flashes of light, but in one continuous mild serenity. The most beautiful period of the heart's existence is in this calm, equable light, even although it be only moonshine or twilight. Now the mind alone can obtain for us this heavenly cheerfulness and peace.
      - [Happiness]

The heart needs not for its heaven much space, nor many stars therein, if only the star of love has arisen.
      - [Love]

The intolerant man is the real pedant.
      - [Intolerance]

The inward fragrance of a young girl's heart is what crystallizes into love.
      - [Girlhood]

The last, best fruit that comes to perfection, even in the kindliest soul, is tenderness toward the hard; forbearance toward the unforbearing; warmth of heart toward the cold; and philanthropy toward the misanthropic.
      - [Charity : Christian]

The miracles of earth are the laws of heaven.
      - [Miracles]
