C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Halleck
 
        And there’s one rare strange virtue in their speeches,
The secret of their mastery—they are short.
  1
        And thou art terrible—the tear,
The groan, the knell, the pall, the bier;
And all we know, or dream, or fear
Of agony, are thine.
  2
              The spell is thine that reaches
  The heart, and makes the wisest head its sport;
And there’s one rare, strange virtue in thy speeches,
  The secret of their mastery—they are short.
  3
        They love their land because it is their own,
And scorn to give aught other reason why.
  4
  Beauty, the fading rainbow’s pride.  5
  I cannot spare the luxury of believing that all things beautiful are what they seem.  6
  I sorrow that all fair things must decay.  7
  One of the few, the immortal names, that were not born to die.  8
  The wild-flower wreath of feeling, the sunbeam of the heart.  9
  What is man’s love? His vows are broke even while his parting kiss is warm.  10
