ANNA LETITIA BARBAULD QUOTES

English poet and essayist (1743-1825)

The world has little to bestow
Where two fond hearts in equal love are joined.

ANNA LETITIA BARBAULD, Delia

Society than solitude is worse
And man to man is still the greatest curse.

ANNA LETITIA BARBAULD, Ovid to His Wife

Eternity.—Thy name
Or glad, or fearful, we pronounce, as thoughts
Wandering in darkness shape thee. Thou strange being,
Which art and must be, yet which contradict'st
All sense, all reasoning,—thou, who never wast
Less than thyself, and who still art thyself
Entire, though the deep draught which Time has taken
Equals thy present store—No line can reach
To thy unfathomed depths. The reasoning sage
Who can dissect a sunbeam, count the stars,
And measure distant worlds, is here a child,
And, humbled, drops his calculating pen.

ANNA LETITIA BARBAULD, "Eternity"

Fair Spring! whose simplest promise more delights
Than all their largest wealth, and thro' the heart
Each joy and new-born hope
With softest influence breathes.

ANNA LETITIA BARBAULD, "Ode to Spring"

Life! we have been long together,
Through pleasant and through cloudy weather;
'Tis hard to part when friends are dear;
Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear;-
Then steal away, give little warning,
Choose thine own time;
Say not Good-night, but in some brighter clime
Bid me Good-morning!

ANNA LETITIA BARBAULD, "Life! I Know Not What Thou Art"
