William Wordsworth: The Strength of Love

There is a comfort in the strength of love;
‘Twill make a thing endurable, which else
Would break the heart.

     –William Wordsworth, from “Michael”


Wordsworth: Faculties Never Used


           . . . he, who feels contempt
           For any living thing, hath faculties
           Which he has never used.

                  –William Wordsworth,
       from “Lines Left Upon a Seat in a Yew-Tree”
