A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on life, words, writing, and grief

I sometimes hold it half a sin, To put in words the grief I feel. For words, like nature, half reveal, And half conceal the soul within.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on dream and afternoon

In the afternoon they came unto a land
In which it seemed always afternoon.
All round the coast the languid air did swoon,
Breathing like one that hath a weary dream.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on love, loss, and truth

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
