Ye banks and braes o' bonny Doon, How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair? How can ye chant, ye little birds, And I sae weary fu' o' care! Thou'll break my heart, thou warbling bird, That wantons thro' the flowering thorn! Thou minds me o' departed joys, Departed never to return.

Heywood Broun

She that would raise a noble love must find Ways to beget a passion for her mind; She must be that which she to the world would seem, For all true love is grounded on esteem: Plainness and truth gain more a generous heart Than all the crooked subtleties of art.

George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham

Friends Nothing is as intractable as an untamed heart. The untamed heart is intractable. Nothing is as tractable as a tamed heart. The tamed heart is tractable. Nothing tends toward loss as does an untamed heart. The untamed heart tends towards loss. Nothing tends toward growth as does a tamed heart. The tamed heart tends towards growth. Nothing brings suffering as does the untamed, uncontrolled unattended and unrestrained heart. That heart brings suffering. Nothing brings joy as does a tamed, controlled, attended and restrained heart. This heart brings joy.

Gautama Buddha

Thou must be true thyself, If thou the truth wouldst teach; Thy soul must overflow, if thou Another's soul would'st reach! It needs the overflow of heart To give the lips full speech. Think truly, and thy thoughts Shall the world's famine feed; Speak truly, and each word of thine Shall be a fruitful seed; Live truly, and thy life shall be A great and noble creed.

Anne Bront

Say does your heart expand to all mankind And would you ever to your neighbour do, The weak, the strong, the enlightened and the blind As you would have your neighbour do to you? And, when you, looking on your fellow men Behold them doomed to endless misery, How can you talk of joy and rapture then? May God withhold such cruel joy from me!

Anne Bront

And, O! there lives within my heart A hope long nursed by me, (And should its cheering ray depart How dark my soul would be) That as in Adam all have died In Christ shall all men live And ever round his throne abide Eternal praise to give; That even the wicked shall at last Be fitted for the skies And when their dreadful doom is past To life and light arise.
