William Cullen Bryant Quotes WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT QUOTES


William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878)

American poet and newspaper editor

Weep not that the world changes -- did it keep a stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, Mutation

Autumn ... the year's last, loveliest smile.

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, "Indian Summer"

Old Ocean's gray and melancholy waste
Are but the solemn decorations all
Of the great tomb of man.

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, Thanatopsis

Truth crushed to earth shall rise again.

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, The Battle-Field

So live, that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan, which moves
To that mysterious realm, where each shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, Thanatopsis

The calm shade
Shall bring a kindred calm, and the sweet breeze
That makes the green leaves dance, shall waft a balm
To thy sick heart.

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, "Inscription for the Entrance to a Wood"
