Action(s)
Engrave this Quote Thought and theory must precede all salutary action; yet action is nobler in itself than either thought or theory.

-William Wordsworth
Engrave this Quote Action is transitory, a step, a blow,
The motion of a muscle, this way or that,
'Tis done--And in the after-vacancy,
We wonder at ourselves, like men betrayed.

Art
Engrave this Quote Is there not an art, a music, and a stream of words that shalt be life, the acknowledged voice of life?

-William Wordsworth
Baby, Babies
Engrave this Quote Mark the babe not long accustomed to this breathing world; One that hath barely learned to shape a smile, though yet irrational of soul, to grasp with tiny finger -- to let fall a tear; And, as the heavy cloud of sleep dissolves, To stretch his limbs, becoming, as might seem. The outward functions of intelligent man.

Birds
Engrave this Quote Happier of happy though I be, like them I cannot take possession of the sky, mount with a thoughtless impulse, and wheel there, one of a mighty multitude whose way and motion is a harmony and dance magnificent.

Birth
Engrave this Quote Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. The soul that rises with us, our life's star, hath had elsewhere its setting, and comet from afar: not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.

-William Wordsworth
Engrave this Quote Behold the Child among his new-born blisses
A six years' Darling of a pigmy size!
See, where 'mid work of his own hand he lies,
Fretted by sallies of his mother's kisses,
With light upon him from his father's eyes!
See, at his feet, some little plan or chart,
Some fragment from his dream of human life,
Shaped by himself with newly-learned art.

-William Wordsworth, Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood, 1807
City Life, Cities
Engrave this Quote This city now doth, like a garment, wear the beauty of the morning; silent bare, ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie open unto the fields and to the sky; All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

Contentment
Engrave this Quote That blessed mood in which the burthen of the mystery, in which the heavy and the weary weight of all this unintelligible world is lightened.

Death
Engrave this Quote No motion has she now, no force; she neither hears nor sees; rolled around in earth's diurnal course, with rocks, and stones, and trees.

Defeat
Engrave this Quote For by superior energies; more strict affiance in each other; faith more firm in their unhallowed principles, the bad have fairly earned a victory over the weak, the vacillating, inconsistent good.

Drugs
Engrave this Quote The human mind is capable of excitement without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this.

Flowers
Engrave this Quote The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly.

Freedom
Engrave this Quote How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold? Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root, and in that freedom bold.

Friends
Engrave this Quote I am already kindly disposed towards you. My friendship it is not in my power to give: this is a gift which no man can make, it is not in our own power: a sound and healthy friendship is the growth of time and circumstance, it will spring up and thrive like a wildflower when these favour, and when they do not, it is in vain to look for it.
