Richard Henry Stoddard
Not what we would, but what we must
Makes up the sum of living;
Heaven is both more and less than just
In taking and in giving.
Stoddard quotes
A face at the window,
A tap on the pane;
Who is it that wants me
To-night in the rain?
Joy may be a miser,
But Sorrow’s purse is free.

Stoddard Richard Henry quotes
We have two lives about us,
Two worlds in which we dwell,
Within us and without us,
Alternate Heaven and Hell:—
Without, the somber Real,
Within, our hearts of hearts, the beautiful Ideal.
Stoddard Richard Henry
It beckons, I follow.
Good-by to the light,
I am going, O whither?
Out into the night.
Richard Henry Stoddard quotes
Silence is the speech of love,
The music of the spheres above.
Richard Henry Stoddard
Children are the keys of Paradise … They alone are good and wise, Because their thoughts, their very lives, are prayer.
Stoddard Richard Henry quotes
There are gains for all our losses,
There are balms for all our pain:
But when youth, the dream, departs,
It takes something from our hearts,
And it never comes again.
