Citações Joaquin Miller

„The fairest face that ever yet
Look'd in a wave as in a glass“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: p>These be but men. We may forget The wild sea-king, the tawny brave, The frowning wold, the woody shore, The tall-built, sunburnt men of Mars...But what and who was she, the fair? The fairest face that ever yet Look'd in a wave as in a glass; That look'd as look the still, far stars, So woman-like, into the wave To contemplate their beauty there, Yet look as looking anywhere?</p IV, p. 24.

„For the Right, through thickest night,
Till the man-brute Wrong be driven
From high places; till the Right
Shall lift like some grand beacon light.“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: For the Right, through thickest night, Till the man-brute Wrong be driven From high places; till the Right Shall lift like some grand beacon light. For the Right! Love, Right and duty; Lift the world up, though you fall Heaped with dead before the wall; God can find a soul of beauty Where it falls, as gems of worth Are found by miners dark in earth. Epigraph, Ch. 4 : The Old Gold-Hunter

„Dear, I took these trackless masses
Fresh from Him who fashioned them“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: p>Dear, I took these trackless masses Fresh from Him who fashioned them; Wrought in rock, and hewed fair passes, Flower set, as sets a gem.Aye, I built in woe. God willed it; Woe that passeth ghosts of guilt. Yet I built as His birds builded — Builded singing as I built.All is finished! Roads of flowers Wait your loyal little feet. All completed? Nay, the hours Till you come are incomplete.</p "Juanita".

Lives for the meanest mortal known.“

—  Joaquin Miller

O generous and high-born rain When reigning as a splendid whole! That man who lives for self alone Lives for the meanest mortal known.</p The Building of the City Beautiful (1905), Ch. V : How Beautiful!, p. 48.

„You shall not know her — she who sat
Unconscious in my heart all time
I dream'd and wove this wayward rhyme,
And loved and did not blush thereat.“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: I only saw her as she pass'd — A great, sad beauty, in whose eyes Lay all the loves of Paradise.... You shall not know her — she who sat Unconscious in my heart all time I dream'd and wove this wayward rhyme, And loved and did not blush thereat. IV, p. 25.

„I dared not dream she loved me.“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: I dared not dream she loved me. Nay, Her love was proud; and pride is loth To look with favor, own it fond Of one the world loves not to-day … No matter if she loved or no, God knows I loved enough for both, And knew her as you shall not know Till you have known sweet death, and you Have cross'd the dark; gone over to The great majority beyond. IV, p. 29.

A stately tree on every rood;
Ten thousand leaves on every tree,
And each a miracle to me;
And yet there be men who question God!“

He seem'd to swallow up the plain“

„And great is the man with a sword undrawn,
And good is the man who refrains from wine;
But the man who fails and yet still fights on,
Lo, he is the twin-born brother of mine.“

Context: p>Oh, great is the hero who wins a name, But greater many and many a time Some pale-faced fellow who dies in shame, And lets God finish the thought sublime.And great is the man with a sword undrawn, And good is the man who refrains from wine; But the man who fails and yet still fights on, Lo, he is the twin-born brother of mine.</p "For Those Who Fail" in Memorie and Rime (1884), p. 237.

Named day were God's own house.“

„Aye, I built in woe. God willed it;
Woe that passeth ghosts of guilt.“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: p>Dear, I took these trackless masses Fresh from Him who fashioned them; Wrought in rock, and hewed fair passes, Flower set, as sets a gem.Aye, I built in woe. God willed it; Woe that passeth ghosts of guilt. Yet I built as His birds builded — Builded singing as I built.All is finished! Roads of flowers Wait your loyal little feet. All completed?

„Come my sovereign queen often;
My blue skies will then be bluest;
My white rose be whitest then:“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: p>O, the sea of lights for streaming When the thousand flags are furled— When the gleaming bay lies dreaming As it duplicates the world!You will come my dearest, truest! Come my sovereign queen often; My blue skies will then be bluest; My white rose be whitest then:Then the song! Ah, then the sabre Flashing up the walls of night! Hate of wrong and love of neighbor Rhymes of battle for the Right!</p "Juanita".

„The very clouds have wept and died,
And only God is in the sky.“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: Lo! all things moving must go by. The sea lies dead. Behold, this land Sits desolate in dust beside His snow-white, seamless shroud of sand; The very clouds have wept and died, And only God is in the sky. XXXV

„Behold, how free
The mountains stand, and eternally.“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: These stony altars they have hurled Oppression back, have kept the boon Of liberty. Behold, how free The mountains stand, and eternally. Epigraph, Ch. 3 : Man-Hunters.

„Shall man not set his standard high,
And hold some higher, holier plan?
Some loftier plan than ever planned
By outworn book of outworn land?“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: p>Behold this sea, that sapphire sky! Where nature does so much for man, Shall man not set his standard high, And hold some higher, holier plan? Some loftier plan than ever planned By outworn book of outworn land?Where God has done so much for man, Shall man for God do aught at all? The soul that feeds on books alone — I count that soul exceeding small That lives alone by book and creed,— A soul that has not learned to read.</p "The Larger College".

„I saw the lightning's gleaming rod
Reach forth and write on heaven's scroll
The awful autograph of God!“

—  Joaquin Miller
Context: Where storm-born shadows hide and hunt I knew thee, in thy glorious youth, And loved thy vast face, white as truth; I stood where thunderbolts were wont To smite thy Titan-fashioned front, And heard dark mountains rock and roll; I saw the lightning's gleaming rod Reach forth and write on heaven's scroll The awful autograph of God! Epigraph, Ch. 1 : Mount Shasta; this appears as "To Mount Shasta" in In Classic Shades, and Other Poems (1890), p. 126 Variant: I saw the lightning's gleaming rod Reach forth and write upon the sky The awful autograph of God. This variant was cited as being in The Ship in the Desert in the 10th edition of Familiar Quotations (1919) by John Bartlett, but this appears to be an incorrect citation of a misquotation first found in The Japanese Letters of Lafcadio Hearn (1910), edited by Elizabeth Bislande, p. 161.
