Frasi Ella Wheeler Wilcox

„I detect
More good than evil in humanity.
Love lights more fires than hate extinguishes,
And men grow better as the world grows old.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: I find a rapture linked with each despair, Well worth the price of anguish. I detect More good than evil in humanity. Love lights more fires than hate extinguishes, And men grow better as the world grows old. Optimism

„Each thing must create its kind;
And they speed o'er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: p>You never can tell when you do an act Just what the result will be; But with every deed you are sowing a seed, Though the harvest you may not see. Each kindly act is an acorn dropped In God's productive soil; You may not know, yet the tree shall grow And shelter the brows that toil.You never can tell what your thoughts will do In bringing you hate or love; For thoughts are things, and their airy wings Are swifter than carrier doves. They follow the law of the universe — Each thing must create its kind; And they speed o'er the track to bring you back Whatever went out from your mind.</p You Never Can Tell (1895).

„There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life's gall.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: Rejoice, and men will seek you; Grieve, and they turn and go. They want full measure of all your pleasure, But they do not need your woe. Be glad, and your friends are many; Be sad, and you lose them all. There are none to decline your nectared wine, But alone you must drink life's gall. Solitude

„Breathe "God," in any tongue — it means the same;
LOVE ABSOLUTE“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: Breathe "God," in any tongue — it means the same; LOVE ABSOLUTE: Think, feel, absorb the thought; Shut out all else; until a subtle flame (A spark from God's creative centre caught) Shall permeate your being, and shall glow, Increasing in its splendour, till, YOU KNOW. Knowledge

„But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays,
Is the word that comes from the heart.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: p>You may choose your word like a connoisseur, And polish it up with art, But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays, Is the word that comes from the heart.You may work on your word a thousand weeks, But it will not glow like one That all unsought, leaps forth white hot, When the fountains of feeling run.</p The Word

„Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: Rejoice, and men will seek you; Grieve, and they turn and go. They want full measure of all your pleasure, But they do not need your woe. Be glad, and your friends are many; Be sad, and you lose them all. There are none to decline your nectared wine, But alone you must drink life's gall. Solitude

„Unless the humblest creatures on the earth
Are bettered by thy loving sympathy
Think not to find a Paradise beyond.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: Hell is wherever Love is not, and Heaven Is Love's location. No dogmatic creed, No austere faith based on ignoble fear Can lead thee into realms of joy and peace. Unless the humblest creatures on the earth Are bettered by thy loving sympathy Think not to find a Paradise beyond. The Way (1913).

And when you question, or demur,
Let Love be your Interpreter.“

„And if pretension for a time deceive,
And prove me one too ready to believe,
Far less my shame, than if by stubborn act,
I brand as lie, some great colossal Fact.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: p>If fallacies come knocking at my door, I'd rather feed, and shelter full a score, Than hide behind the black portcullis, doubt, And run the risk of barring one Truth out.And if pretension for a time deceive, And prove me one too ready to believe, Far less my shame, than if by stubborn act, I brand as lie, some great colossal Fact.</p Credulity

In one continued chain of endless life.“
