      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

England, an old and exhausted island, must one day be contented, like other parents, to be strong only in her children.
      - [England]

Ennui shortens life, and bereaves the day of its light.
      - [Ennui]

Enthusiasm goes out.
      - [Enthusiasm]

      - [Enthusiasm]

Evermore in the world is this marvelous balance of beauty and disgust, magnificence and rats.

      - [Books]

Every chair should be a throne and hold a king.

One is struck in every company, at every fireside, with the riches of nature, when he hears so many new tones, all musical, sees in each person original manners, which have a proper and peculiar charm, and reads new expressions of face. He perceives that nature has laid for each the foundations of a divine building, if the soul will build thereon.
      - [Individuality]

Every man is as lazy as he dares to be.
      - [Laziness]

Every moment instructs, and every object; for wisdom is infused into every form. It has been poured into us as blood; it convulsed us as pain; it slid into us as pleasure; it enveloped us in dull, melancholy days, or in days of cheerful labor; we did not guess its essence until after long time.
      - [Wisdom]

Every natural action is graceful.
      - [Grace]

Every noble activity makes room for itself.
      - [Action]

Every novel is a debtor to Homer.
      - [Fiction]

Every ship is a romantic object, except that we sail in.
      - [Ships]
