Author Quotes

There is no sorrow I have though more about than that, to love what is great, and try to reach it, and yet to fail.

It is never too late to be what we might have been.

To be a poet is to have a soul so quick to discern that no shade of quality escapes it, and so quick to feel that discernment is but a hand playing with finely ordered variety on the chords of emotion: a soul in which knowledge passes instantaneously into feeling, and feeling flashes back as a new organ of knowledge.
