Quotes by Christina Georgina Rossetti

My heart is like a singing bird.
I might show facts as plain as day: but, since your eyes are blind, you'd say, "Where? What?" and turn away.
She gave up beauty in her tender youth, gave all her hope and joy and pleasant ways; she covered up her eyes lest they should gaze on vanity, and chose the bitter truth.
And all the winds go sighing, for sweet things dying.
Silence is more musical than any song.
I dream of you to wake; would that I might Dream of you and not wake but slumber on.
Hope is like a hairball trembling from its birth.
Better by far you should forget and smile that you should remember and be sad.
Be the green grass above me, with showers and dewdrops wet; and if thou wilt, remember, and if thou wilt, forget.
To strengthen whilst one stands.
Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine.
For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.
Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I but when the trees bow down their heads, the wind is passing by.
Obedience is the fruit of faith.
In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.
Better by far you should forget and smile than you should remember and be sad.
