Esaias Tegner
Autumn has come;
Storming now heaveth the deep sea with foam,
Yet would I gratefully lie there,
Willingly die there.
Tegner quotes
A woman's honor rests on manly love.
"Det dunkelt sagda är det dunkelt tänkta."

Tegner Esaias quotes
A dead father's counsel, a wise son heedeth.
Tegner Esaias
Hener was the hero-king,
Heaven-born, dear to us,
Showing his shield
A shelter for peace.
Esaias Tegner quotes
A sense of justice is a noble fancy.
Esaias Tegner
A glimpse of Breidablick, whose walls are light
As e'en the silver on the cliff it shone;
Of dark blue steel its columns azure height
And the big altar was one agate stone.
It seemed as if the air upheld alone
Its dome, unless supporting spirits bore it,
Studded with stars Odin's spangled throne,
A light inscrutable burned fiercely o'er it;
In sky-blue mantles,
Sat the gold-crowned gods before it.
