Helen Hunt Jackson

But all lost things are in the angels' keeping.

Wounded vanity knows when it is mortally hurt; and limps off the field, piteous, all disguises thrown away. But pride carries its banner to the last.

There is nothing so skillful in its own defence as imperious pride.

Love has a tide!

That indescribable expression peculiar to people who hope they have not been asleep, but know they have.

Who longest waits of all most surely wins.

Words are less needful to sorrow than to joy.
