Quotes by Francis Thompson
Look for me in the nurseries of Heaven.
The innocent moon, that nothing does but shine,
Moves all the labouring surges of the world.
Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul.
Nothing begins, and nothing ends,
That is not paid with moan,
For we are born in other's pain,
And perish in our own.
Short arm needs man to reach to Heaven,
So ready is Heaven to stoop to him.
Thou canst not stir a flower / Without troubling of a star.
The fairest things have fleetest end,
Their scent survives their close:
But the rose's scent is bitterness
To him that loved the rose.
