William Wordsworth foi o maior poeta romântico inglês que, ao lado de Samuel Taylor Coleridge, ajudou a lançar o romantismo na literatura inglesa com a publicação conjunta, em 1798, das Lyrical Ballads .


„A natureza nunca traiu o coração que amava.“

„Estamos mais próximos da sabedoria quando nos curvamos e não quando pairamos no alto.“


„A poesia é a recordação de fortes emoções sob um estado de forte tranquilidade.“

„A criança é pai do homem.“

„A poesia é o transbordamento espontâneo de sentimentos intensos: tem a sua origem na emoção recordada num estado de tranquilidade.“

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

„Nós, poetas, na nossa mocidade começamos com alegria,
Mas daí passamos finalmente ao desalento e à loucura.“

„The best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.“ Lyrical Ballads


„Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.“

„Wisdom is oft-times nearer when we stoop
Than when we soar.“
The Excursion 1814

„Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be...“

„I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.“
I Wander'd Lonely as a Cloud


„What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.“

„Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.“ Lyrical Ballads

„Nature never did betray
The heart that loved her.“

„Rest and be thankful.“
