Theodore Tilton
"What is wealth?" the king would say,
"Even this shall pass away".
Tilton quotes
So, lest I be inclined
To render ill for ill,—
Henceforth in me instil,
O God, a sweet good-will
To all mankind.
I won a noble fame;
But with a sudden frown,
The people snatched my crown,
And, in the mire, trod down
My lofty name.

Tilton Theodore quotes
"What is fame?
Fame is but a slow decay—
Even this shall pass away."
Tilton Theodore
"Pleasure comes, but not to stay;
Even this shall pass away."
Theodore Tilton quotes
But I account it worth
All pangs of fair hopes crost—
All loves and honors lost,—
To gain the heavens, at cost
Of losing earth.
Theodore Tilton
"Pain is hard to bear," he cried,
"But with patience, day by day,
Even this shall pass away."
