Richard Hovey
Nor love they least
Who strike with right good will
To vanquish ill
And fight Godís battle upward from the beast.
Hovey quotes
In all climes we pitch out tents,
Cronies of the elements,
With the secret lords of birth
Intimate and free.
For ít is always fair weather
When good fellows get together
With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear.

Hovey Richard quotes
Spring in the world!
And all things are made new!
Hovey Richard
How loving is the Lord God and how strong withal!
Richard Hovey quotes
Love seeks a guerdon; friendship is as God,
Who gives and asks no payment.
Richard Hovey
The people blossoms armies and puts forth
The splendid summer of its noiseless might.
Hovey Richard quotes
The East and the West in the spring of the world shall blend
As a man and a woman that plight
Their troth in the warm spring night.
Fair weather weddings make fair weather lives.
Hovey Richard
The great white cold walks abroad!
Richard Hovey
There are worser ills to face
Than foemen in the fray;
And many a man has fought becauseó
He feared to run away.

Richard Hovey quotes
Praise be to you, O hills, that you can breathe
Into our souls the secret of your power!
Richard Hovey
Shall the iron argue with the smith what it would be?
Or, shall the wrought iron reason with the monger
To whom it would be sold?
Hovey quotes
Who would not rather founder in the fight
Than not have known the glory of the fray?
Hovey Richard
There is no sorrow like a love denied
Nor any joy like love that has its will.
Hovey Richard quotes
I have need of the sky,
I have business with the grass;
I will up and get me away where the hawk is wheeling
Lone and high,
And the slow clouds go by.
I will get me away to the waters that glass
The clouds as they pass.
I will get me away to the woods.
