Ella Wheeler Wilcox quotes - 10 of
It has ever been since time began,
And ever will be, till time lose breath, ...
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train, ...
Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go. ...
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone, ...
Come, cuddle your head on my shoulder, dear,
Your head like the golden-rod, ...
With care, and skill, and cunning art,
She parried Time's malicious dart, ...
He may not shine with courtly graces,
But yet, his kind, respectful air ...
It's the set of the sails and not the gales,
That bids them where to go.
It's the set of the soul that decides the goal,
And not the storms or the strife.
