Simplicity of life, even the barest, is not a misery, but the very foundation of refinement.

WILLIAM MORRIS, Hopes and Fears for Art

Love is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder
And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass'd over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

WILLIAM MORRIS, "Love Is Enough"

WILLIAM MORRIS, "Useful Work vs Useless Toil", Signs of Change: Seven Lectures, Delivered on Various Occasions

What better place than this then could we find
By this sweet stream that knows not of the sea,
This little stream whose hamlets scarce have names,
This far-off lonely mother of the Thames.

WILLIAM MORRIS, "The Months: June"
