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.

O Love, O fire! Once he drew With one long kiss my whole soul through
My lips, as sunlight drinketh dew.

Thy leaf has perished in the green, And while we breathe beneath the sun, The world which credits what is done Is cold to all that might have been.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on beginning, garden, and love

Come into the garden, Maud, For the black bat, night, has flown Come into the garden, Maud, I am here at the gate alone: And the woodbine spices are wafted abroad, And the musk of the rose is blown. For a breeze of morning moves, And the planet of Love is on high, Beginning to faint in the light that she loves On a bed of daffodil sky.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on cruelty, immortality, lies, quiet, and world

The woods decay, the woods decay and fall, The vapours weep their burthen to the ground, Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath, And after many summer dies the swan. Me only cruel immortality Consumes: I wither slowly in thine arms, Here at the quiet limit of the world.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on belief, doubt, faith, honesty, and life

There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.
