Quotes by William Wordsworth

A creature not too bright or good For human nature's daily food;...
For still, the more he works, the moreDo his weak ankles swell.
As a huge stone is sometimes seen to lie/ Couched on the bald top of an eminence.
She dwelt among the untrodden ways Beside the springs of Dove, A maid whom there were none to praise And very few to love.
But an old age serene and bright, and lovely as a Lapland night, shall lead thee to thy grave.
Small service is true service, while it lasts.
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
Faith is a passionate intuition.
How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold? Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root, and in that freedom bold.
She seemed a thing that could not feel the touch of earthly years.
The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly.
Golf is a day spent in a round of strenuous idleness.
The ocean is a mighty harmonist.
To begin, begin.
I traveled among unknown men, in lands beyond the sea; nor England! did I know till then what love I bore to thee.
The thought of our past years in me doth breed perpetual benedictions.
Not Chaos, not the darkest pit of lowest Erebus, nor aught of blinder vacancy, scooped out by help of dreams - can breed such fear and awe as fall upon us often when we look into our Minds, into the Mind of Man.
A reasoning, self-sufficing thing, An intellectual all-in-all!
One impulse from a vernal wood May teach you more of man, Of moral evil and of good, Than all the sages can.
When from our better selves we have too long been parted by the hurrying world, and droop. Sick of its business, of its pleasures tired, how gracious, how benign in solitude.
Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature be your teacher.
In stray gifts to be claimed by whoever shall find.
Wisdom is ofttimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away; than what it leaves behind.
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
