Engrave this Quote Faded the flower and all its budded charms,Faded the sight of beauty from my eyes,Faded the shape of beauty from my arms,Faded the voice, warmth, whiteness, paradise!Vanishd unseasonably

Adversity
Engrave this Quote Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?

Beauty
Engrave this Quote A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing...

-John Keats
Engrave this Quote Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thoughtAs doth eternity: Cold Pastoral!
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' -- that is all
Ye know on Earth, and all ye need to know.

Charity
Engrave this Quote Are there not thousands in the world who love their fellows even to the death, who feel the giant agony of the world, and more, like slaves to poor humanity, labor for mortal good?

Engrave this Quote Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.

-John Keats
Engrave this Quote When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain,
Before high-piled books, in charact'ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen'd grain;
When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And feel that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;
And when I feel, fair creature of an hour!
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love;- then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think,
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink.

Fame
Engrave this Quote Who would wish to be among the commonplace crowd of the little famous -- who are each individually lost in a throng made up of themselves?

Family
Engrave this Quote The roaring of the wind is my wife and the stars through the window pane are my children. The mighty abstract idea I have of beauty in all things stifles the more divided and minute domestic happiness.

Fight, Fighting

Humanity
Engrave this Quote There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify -- so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.

-John Keats
Engrave this Quote The imagination of a boy is healthy, and the mature imagination of a man is healthy; but there is a space of life between, in which the soul is in ferment, the character undecided, the way of life uncertain, the ambition thick-sighted: thence proceeds mawkishness.

Independence
Engrave this Quote I equally dislike the favor of the public with the love of a woman -- they are both a cloying treacle to the wings of independence.
