A Quote by Ellen Sturgis Hooper on beauty, dreams, duty, heart, lies, life, and truth

I slept, and dreamed that life was Beauty; I woke, and found that life was Duty. Was thy dream then a shadowy lie? Toil on, poor heart, unceasingly; And thou shalt find thy dream to be A truth and noonday light to thee.

Ellen Sturgis Hooper (1816 - 1841)
