Citações William Wordsworth

„A verdadeira beleza vive em refúgios profundos, cujo véu é irremovível, até que coração e coração em concordância batam. E o amor é amado.“

—  William Wordsworth

True beauty dwells in deep retreats, Whose veil is unremoved Till heart with heart in concord beats, And the lover is beloved.
The poetical works of William Wordsworth: in eight volumes, Volume 4‎ - Página 177, D. Bryce, 1827

„To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.“

Contexto: These beauteous forms,
Through a long absence, have not been to me
As is a landscape to a blind man's eye:
But oft, in lonely rooms, and 'mid the din
Of towns and cities, I have owed to them,
In hours of weariness, sensations sweet,
Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart;
And passing even into my purer mind,
With tranquil restoration:—feelings too
Of unremembered pleasure: such, perhaps,
As have no slight or trivial influence
On that best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts
Of kindness and of love. Nor less, I trust,
To them I may have owed another gift,
Of aspect more sublime; that blessed mood,
In which the burthen of the mystery,
In which the heavy and the weary weight
Of all this unintelligible world
Is lighten'd:—that serene and blessed mood,
In which the affections gently lead us on,—
Until, the breath of this corporeal frame
And even the motion of our human blood
Almost suspended, we are laid asleep
In body, and become a living soul:
While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.

„For old, unhappy, far-off things,
And battles long ago.“

—  William Wordsworth, The Solitary Reaper

„The feather, whence the pen
Was shaped that traced the lives of these good men,
Dropped from an Angel's wing.“

Ecclesiastical Sonnets (1821)

„I listened, motionless and still;
And, as I mounted up the hill,
The music in my heart I bore,
Long after it was heard no more.“

—  William Wordsworth, The Solitary Reaper

Let Nature be your teacher.“
