C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Anna Katharine Green
 
        As timid violets lade the ambient air
With their heart’s richest fragrance, unaware
The fragrance whispers that the flower is there.
  1
        Hath the spirit of all beauty
Kissed you in the path of duty?
  2
        He who steps on stones is glad to feel
The smallest spray of moss beneath his feet.
  3
                    The free
Mighty, music-haunted sea.
  4
                    The very stars
Tremble above, as though the Voice Divine
Reverberated through the dread expanse.
  5
  The very shadows seem to listen.  6
  There are two kinds of artists in this world; those that work because the spirit is in them, and they cannot be silent if they would, and those that speak from a conscientious desire to make apparent to others the beauty that has awakened their own admiration.  7
