A Quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton on anger, balance, beauty, extremism, harmony, motherhood, mountains, nature, peace, and trying

Nature, like a loving mother, is ever trying to keep land and sea, mountain and valley, each in its place, to hush the angry winds and waves, balance the extremes of heat and cold, of rain and drought, that peace, harmony and beauty may reign supreme.

A Quote by Charles Edwin Markham on beauty, defeat, glory, grief, heart, joy, soul, and victory

Defeat may serve as well as victory To shake the soul and let the glory out. When the great oak is straining in the wind, The boughs drink in new beauty and the trunk Sends down a deeper root on the windward side. Only the soul that knows the mighty grief Can know the mighty rapture, Sorrows come To stretch out spaces in the heart for joy.

A Quote by Edward King on beauty, charm, creation, influence, quality, and students

One of his students wrote afterwards of King's influence as follows: The whole place was alive with him. His look, his voice, his gaiety, his beauty, his charm, his holiness, filled it and possessed it. There was an air about it, a tone in it, a quality, a delicacy, a depth, which were his creation. . . . All was human, natural, and free.
