Lord Alfred Tennyson quotes:
Cleave ever to the sunnier side of doubt.Better not be at all than not be noble.
Virtue must shape itself in deed.
The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passion.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,--
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
I myself must mix with action, lest I wither by despair.
The vow that binds too strictly snaps itself.
.... thy memory shall be blest by the children of the children of thy child.
If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.
Their’s not to reason why, Their’s but to do and die…
Forward, forward let us range, Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change.
