We were very tired, we were very merry- We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.

A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on friendship and heart

My heart is warm with the friends I make, And better friends I'll not be knowing; Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take, No matter where it's going.

A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on god, heart, soul, and world

The world stands out on either side No wider than the heart is wide; Above the world is stretched the sky,- No higher than the soul is high. The heart can push the sea and land Farther away on either hand; The soul can split the sky in two, And let the face of God shine through But East and West will pinch the heart That cannot keep them pushed apart; And he whose soul is flat-the sky Will cave in on him by and by.
