A minute's success pays for the failure of years.
      - [Success]

A pretty woman's worth some pains to see,
  Nor is she spoiled, I take it, if a crown
    Completes the forehead pale and tresses pure.
      - [Women]

And gain is gain, however small.
      - [Gain]

Any nose may ravage with impunity a rose.
      - [Roses]

Be sure they sleep not whom God needs.
      - [Sleep]

Fair or foul the lot apportioned life on earth, we bear alike.
      - [Fate]

Faster and more fast,
  O'er night's brim, day boils at last;
    Boils, pure gold, o'er the cloud-cup's brim.
      - [Dawn]

Faultless to a fault.
      - [Faults]

God is a perfect poet,
  Who in His person acts His own creations.
      - [God]

God smiles as He has always smiled;
  Ere suns and moons could wax and wane,
    Ere stars were thundergirt, or piled
      The Heavens, God thought on me His child;
        Ordained a life for me, arrayed
          Its circumstances, every one
            To the minutest; ay, God said
              This head this hand should rest upon
                Thus, ere He fashioned star or sun.
      - [Providence]

I know a mount, the gracious Sun perceives
  First when he visits, last, too, when he leaves
    The world; and, vainly favored, it repays
      The day-long glory of his steadfast gaze
        By no change of its large calm front of snow.
      - [Mountains]

I send my heart up to thee, all my heart
  In this my singing!
    For the stars help me, and the sea bear part.
      - [Singers]

Lied is a rough phrase; say he fell from truth.
      - [Lying]

No thought which ever stirred
  A human breast should be untold.
      - [Thought]

One wise man's verdict outweighs all the fools'.
      - [Judgment]

Pleasure must succeed to pleasure, else past pleasure turns to pain.
      - [Pleasure]

Progress is the law of life,--man is not man as yet.
      - [Progress]

So free we seem, so fettered fast we are.
      - [Freedom]

So may a glory from defect arise.
      - [Glory]

Sorrow, the heart must bear,
  Sits in the home of each, conspicuous there.
    Many a circumstance, at least,
      Touches the very breast.
        For those
          Whom any sent away,--he knows:
            And in the live man's stead,
              Armor and ashes reach
                The house of each.
      - [Sorrow]

Stung by the splendour of a sudden thought.
      - [Thought]

Take away love and our earth is a tomb.
      - [Love]

Talent should minister to genius.
      - [Genius]

The best is yet to be,
  The last of life, for which the first was made.
      - [Age]

There are times when patience proves at fault.
      - [Patience]
