Happy Birthday, William Wordsworth, born 7 April 1770, died 23 April 1850
10 Wordsworth Quotes
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.
The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away; than what it leaves behind.
The human mind is capable of excitement without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this.
Wisdom is oftentimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
The best portion of a good man’s life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.
Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.
Come grow old with me. The best is yet to be.
The good die first, and they whose hearts are dry as summer dust, burn to the socket.
Though nothing will bring back the hour of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; we will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.
To begin, begin.
Wordsworth was Britain’s Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850. He was a major English Romantic poet who helped launch the Romantic Age in English literature. Wordsworth’s magnum opus is considered to be The Prelude, a semi-autobiographical poem of his early years. It was posthumously titled and published, prior to which it was generally known as the poem ‘to Coleridge’.
