Though I know he loves me, tonight my heart is sad; his kiss was not so wonderful as all the dreams I had.

When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise, life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange - my youth.

I am not yours, not lost in you, Not lost, although I long to be Lost as a candle lit at noon, Lost as a snowflake in the sea. You love me, and I find you still A spirit beautiful and bright, Yet I am I, who long to be Lost as a light is lost in light.

Life is but thought.

I found more joy in sorrow than you could find in joy.

There's nothing half so real in life as the things you've done...inexorably, unalterably done.

It is strange how often a heart must be broken before the years can make it wise.

Can I ever know you Or you know me?

No one worth possessing Can be quite possessed.

A hush is over everything, Silent as women wait for love; The world is waiting for the spring.

Beauty, more than bitterness, makes the heart break.

I make the most of all that comes, And the least of all that goes.

I have no riches but my thoughts. Yet these are wealth enough for me.
