Love In the City
Words of Love

Love is watchful and sleeping, slumbereth not.
The life of our city is rich
in poetic and marvelous subjects.
Kind Words are the Bright Flowers

Love In the City - Words of Love

Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing more courageous, nothing higher, nothing wider, nothing more pleasant, nothing fuller nor better in Heaven and earth, because love is born of God, and cannot rest but in God, above all created things. Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility… It is therefore able to undertake all things, and it completes many things, and warrants them to take effect, where he who does not love would faint and lie down. Love is watchful and sleeping, slumbereth not. Though weary, it is not tired; though pressed, it is not straitened; though alarmed, it is not confounded; but, as a living flame, and burning torch, it forces its way upwards and securely passes all.
- Thomas a Kempis

Love Can Never Lose Its Own

Yet Love will dream and Faith will trust
(Since He who knows our need is just)
That somehow, somewhere, meet we must.
Alas for him who never sees
The stars shine through his cypress trees!
Who, hopeless, lays his dead away,
Nor looks to see the braking day
Across the mournful marbles play!
Who hath not learned, in hours of faith,
The truth to flesh and sense unknown
That Life is ever lord of Death,
And Love can never lose its own!
- John Greenleaf Whittier

Kind Words are the Bright Flowers

Kind words are the bright flowers of earthly existence; use them, and especially around the fireside circle. They are jewels beyond price, and powerful to heal the wounded heart and make the weighed-down spirit glad.

Let us use our speech as we should wish we had done when one of us is silent in death. Let us give all the communications make all the explanations, speak all the loving words ere it is too late.

A genuine word of kindness is often the best lever to raise a depressed spirit to its natural level.

The art of saying appropriate words a kindly way is one that never goes out of fashion, never ceases to please, and is within the reach of the humblest.

Always say a kind word if you can, if only that it may come in, perhaps, with singular opportuneness, entering some mournful man’s darkened room, like a beautiful firefly, whose happy circumvolutions he cannot but watch, forgetting his many troubles.
- Arthur Helps ©

Love Is the Medicine

Love is the medicine of all moral evil. By it the world is to be cured of sin. Love is the wine of existence. When you have taken that, you have taken the most precious drop that there is in the cluster. Love is the seraph, and faith and hope are but the wings by which it flies. The nature of the highest love is to be exquisitely sensitive to the act of forcing itself unbidden and unwelcomed upon another. The finer, the stronger, the higher love is, the more it is conditioned upon reciprocation. No man can afford to invest his being in anything lower than faith, hope, love- these three, the greatest of which is love.
- Henry Ward Beecher

Kind Words

Kind words cost no more than unkind ones. Kind words produce kind actions, not only on the part of those to whom they are addressed, but on the part of those by whom they are employed; and this not incidentally only, but habitually in virtue of the principle of association.
- Jeremy Bentham

Yes, we are all growing old, though unconsciously, and the foot of time falls as softly as ever, and the current of life flows on as smoothly as ever- indeed, the fuller the current, the more noiseless it flow. And months and years are, after all, so very much alike that they pass away without special observation, and we begin to get old before we think of it. And when we sit down to a simple sum in arithmetic- the subtraction of the year of our birth from the current year- we are astonished at the answer, and are so doubtful of its correctness that we go over it a second time, but always with the same result. Children grow up around us, but we get used to that, and are so busy that we selfdom stop to compute their ages and realize swift flight of the years. In fact, our children never get old to us. The wife who has stood lovingly and faithfully at our side so long, never changes, and it is always the fair young bride of the old and happy days. Though his hair may have grown grey in some way which we do not exactly understand, and his step may seem a little less elastic and firm than it was, the husband does not seem to have changed much, after all. - Balfern ©

Cold Words

Cold words freeze people, and hot words make them bitter, and bitter words make them bitter, and wrathful words make them wrathful. Kind words also produce their own image on men’s souls; and a beautiful image it is. They smooth, and quiet, and comfort the hearer.
- Pascal


What are our lame praises in comparison with His love? Nothing, and less than nothing; but love will stammer rather than be dumb.
- Robert Leighton


Words are like leaves,
and where they most abound,
much fruit of sense beneath
is seldom found.
- Quote by Pope

It is better for a city to be
governed by a good man
than by good laws.
- Quote by Aristotle

Words are only postage stamps
delivering the object
for you to unwrap.
- Quote by George Bernard Shaw

But all the clocks in the city
Began to whirr and chime:
'O let not Time deceive you,
You cannot conquer Time.
- Quote by W. H. Auden

A great city is not to be
confounded with a populous one.
- Quote by Aristotle

By swallowing evil words unsaid,
no one has ever harmed his stomach.
- Quote by Winston Churchill

For beautiful eyes,
look for the good in others;
for beautiful lips,
speak only words of kindness;
and for poise, walk with the
knowledge that you are never alone.
- Quote by Audrey Hepburn

The life of our city is rich
in poetic and marvelous subjects.
We are enveloped and steeped as
though in an atmosphere of the
marvelous; but we do not notice it.
- Quote by Charles Baudelaire

One of the hardest things
in life is having words in
your heart that you can't utter.
- Quote by James Earl Jones

Three Tests

When I want to speak let me think first.
Is it true? Is it Kind? Is it necessary?
If not, let it be left unsaid.
- Babcock
