More From William Wordsworth
- "For I have learned to look on nature, not as in the hour of thoughtless youth, but hearing oftentimes the still, sad music of humanity."
- "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."
- "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."

- "For the happiest life, days should be rigorously planned, nights left open to chance."― Mignon McLaughlin
