A sadder and a wiser man He rose the morrow morn.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Experience

The Devil did grin for his darling sin Is pride that apes humility.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Devil

Like one that on a lonesome road Doth walk in fear and dread And having once turned round walks on And turns no more his head Because he knows a frightful fiend Doth close behind him tread.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Pursue

Our quaint metaphysical opinions in an hour of anguish are like playthings by the bedside of a child deathly sick.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Death

Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Common

Pity is best taught by fellowship in woe.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Pity

Prose - words in their best order; Poetry - the best words in their best order.

So lonely t was that God himself Scarce seemed there to be.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Lonely

It sounds like stories from the land of spirits If any man obtain that which he merits Or any merit that which he obtains.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Property

If you would be well with a great mind leave him with a favorable impression of you; if with a little mind leave him with a favorable opinion of himself.
