Sarah Doudney
But the waiting time, my brothers,
Is the hardest time of all.
Doudney quotes
I send thee pansies while the year is young,
Yellow as sunshine, purple as the night;
Flowers of remembrance, ever fondly sung
By all the chiefest of the Sons of Light.
And a proverb haunts my mind
As a spell is cast,
"The mill cannot grind
With the water that is past."

Doudney Sarah quotes
The pure, the beautiful, the bright,
That stirred our hearts in youth,
The impulse to a wordless prayer,
The dreams of love and truth,
The longings after something lost,
The spiritís yearning cry,
The strivings after better hopes,ó
These things can never die.
