A Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll on art, change, darkness, dreams, earth, heart, heaven, home, immortality, joy, life, love, motherhood, music, passion, patriotism, philosophy, poets, quiet, sacred, and world

Love is the only bow on life's dark cloud. It is the Morning and the Evening Star. It shines upon the cradle of the babe, and sheds its radiance upon the quiet tomb. It is the Mother of Art, inspirer of poet, patriot, and philosopher. It is the air and light of every heart, builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody, for music is the voice of Love. Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings of common clay. It is the perfume of the wondrous flower-the heart-and without that sacred passion, . . . we are less than beasts; but with it, earth and heaven are gods.

Robert Ingersoll (1833 - 1899)

A Quote by Robert Browning on dance, poets, and women

Round and round, like a dance of snow In a dazzling drift, as its guardians, go Floating the women faded for ages, Sculptured in stone on the poet's pages.

The love of nature is religion, and that religion is poetry; these three things are one thing. This is the unspoken creed of haiku poets.
