James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Eugene Lee Hamilton
 
  Let those who hope for brighter shores no more, / Not mourn, but turning inland, bravely seek / What hidden wealth redeems the shapeless shore.  1
  The hollow sea-shell which for years hath stood / On dusty shelves, when held against the ear / Proclaims its stormy parent.  2
  The strong must build stout cabins for the weak; / Must plan and stint; must sow and reap and store; / For grain takes root though all seems bare and bleak.  3
