- "Unto a broken heart No other one may go Without he high perogative Itself hath suffered too."
- "If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain."
- "Remember if you marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance, will neither last nor please thee one year: and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all."
- "Old age comes on suddenly, and not gradually as is thought."
- "We turn not older with years, but newer every day."
- "There is another sky,/ Ever serene and fair,/ And there is another sunshine,/ Though it be darkness there;/ Never mind faded forests, Austin,/ Never mind silent fields -/ Here is a little forest,/ Whose leaf is ever green;/ Here is a brighter garden,/ Where not a frost has been;/ In its unfading flowers/ I hear the bright bee hum:/ Prithee, my brother,/ Into my garden come!"
- "Forever is composed of nows."
