Philip James Bailey
Night brings out stars as sorrow shows us truths.
Bailey quotes
The worst men often give the best advice.
Bailey
Art is man's nature; nature is God's art.




Bailey Philip James quotes
Any heart turned Godward feels more joy
In one short hour of prayer, than e'er was raised
By all the feasts of earth since its foundation.
Bailey Philip James
Who never doubted never half believed
Where doubt there truth is—'t is her shadow.
Philip James Bailey quotes
Kindness is wisdom.
Philip James Bailey
Envy's a coal comes hissing hot from hell.
Bailey Philip James quotes
I cannot be content with less than heaven;
Living, and comprehensive of all life.
Thee, universal heaven, celestial all;
Thee, sacrjd seat of intellective time;
Field of the soul's best wisdom: home of truth,
Star-throned.
Bailey
Respect is what we owe; love what we give.
Bailey Philip James
Evil and good are God's right hand and left.
Philip James Bailey
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Life's but a means unto an end; that end
Beginning, mean, and end to all things, —God.
The dead have all the glory of the world.




Philip James Bailey quotes
America thou half-brother of the world!
With something good and bad of every land.
Philip James Bailey
Men might be better if we better deemed
Of them. The worst way to improve the world
Is to condemn it.
Bailey quotes
Let each man think himself an act of God,
His mind a thought, his life a breath of God;
And let each try, by great thoughts and good deeds,
To show the most of Heaven he hath in him.
Bailey Philip James
I cannot be content with less than heaven.
Bailey Philip James quotes
Music tells no truths.
