A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on death, losing, love, and victory

And so for me there is no sting of death, And so the grave has lost its victory. It is but crossing-with abated breath And white, set face-a little strip of sea To find the loved ones waiting on the shore, More beautiful, more precious than before.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on beginning, blindness, concern, friendship, god, justice, life, past, pregnancy, sleep, sorrow, soul, time, and wishes

With every rising of the sun, Think of your life as just begun. The past has shrived and buried deep All yesterdays; there let them sleep. Concern yourself with but today, Woo it, and teach it to obey Your will and wish. Since time began Today has been the friend of man; But in his blindness and his sorrow, He looks to yesterday and tomorrow. You, and today! a soul sublime, And the great pregnant hour of time, With God himself to bind the twain! Go forth, I say-attain, attain! With God himself to bind the twain!

With care, and skill, and cunning art, She parried Time's malicious dart, And kept the years at bay, Till passion entered in her heart And aged her in a day!

All love that has not friendship for its base, Is like a mansion built upon the sand.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on borrowing, earth, laughter, trouble, and world

Laugh and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on beginning, death, life, love, time, and women

It has ever been since time began, And ever will be, till time lose breath, That love is a mood - no more - to man, And love to a woman is life or death.
