To reveal its complacence by gifts is one of the native dialects of love.
      - [Love]

Vigorous exercise will often fortify a feeble constitution.
      - [Exercise]

We speak of educating our children. Do we know that our children also educate us?
      - [Children]

Ye say they all have passed away,
  That noble race and brave;
    That their light canoes have vanished
      From off the crested wave;
        That mid the forests where they roamed
          There rings no hunter's shout;
            But their name is on your waters;
              Ye may not wash it out.
      - Indian Names [Names]

Not on the outer world
  For inward joy depend;
    Enjoy the luxury of thought,
      Make thine own self friend;
        Not with the restless throng,
          In search of solace roam
            But with an independent zeal
              Be intimate at home.
      - Know Thyself [Contentment]

Flow on, forever, in thy glorious robe
  Of terror and of beauty. Yea, flow on
    Unfathomed and resistless. God hath set
      His rainbow on thy forehead: and the cloud
        Mantled around thy feet. And He doth give
          Thy voice of thunder power to speak of Him
            Eternally--bidding the lip of man
              Keep silence--and upon thine altar pour
                Incense of awe-struck praise.
      - Niagara [Niagara]

And say to mothers what a holy charge
  Is theirs--with what a kingly power their love
    Might rule the fountains of the new-born mind.
      - The Mother of Washington (l. 33)
        [Motherhood]
