William Wordsworth quotes (37)

A multitude of causes unknown to former times are now acting with a combined force to blunt the discriminating powers of the mind, and unfitting it for all voluntary exertion to reduce it to a state of almost savage torpor.
William Wordsworth   Category:

But an old age serene and bright, and lovely as a Lapland night, shall lead thee to thy grave.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.

How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold? Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root, and in that freedom bold.
William Wordsworth   Category:

I listened, motionless and still; And, as I mounted up the hill, The music in my heart I bore, Long after it was heard no more.
William Wordsworth   Category:

In modern business it is not the crook who is to be feared most, it is the honest man who doesn't know what he is doing.
William Wordsworth   Category: Business

Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present to live better in the future.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Not without hope we suffer and we mourn.
William Wordsworth   Category:

One impulse from a vernal wood May teach you more of man, Of moral evil and of good, Than all the sages can.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. Not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Pictures deface walls more often than they decorate them.
William Wordsworth   Category: Art

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Rapine, avarice, expense, This is idolatry; and these we adore; Plain living and high thinking are no more.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Suffering is permanent, obscure and dark, And shares the nature of infinity.
William Wordsworth   Category:

That best portion of a man's life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
William Wordsworth   Category:

That though the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower. We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The best portion of a good man's life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The child is father of the man.
William Wordsworth   Category: Dad

The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The human mind is capable of excitement without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away; than what it leaves behind.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The ocean is a mighty harmonist.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
William Wordsworth   Category:

The world is too much with us; late and soon, getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours.
William Wordsworth   Category:

To begin, begin.
William Wordsworth   Category:

To me the meanest flower that blows can give thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
William Wordsworth   Category:

What is pride? A rocket that emulates the stars.
William Wordsworth   Category:

What we need is not the will to believe, but the wish to find out.
William Wordsworth   Category:

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.
William Wordsworth   Category:

Wisdom is oftentimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
William Wordsworth   Category:

With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.
