For those whose hearts are true,
For the Heaven that smiles above you,
And the good that you may do.

Nature is the art of God. (Sir Thomas Browne.)
An artist without sentiment is a painter without colours. (James M. Barrie).
There is no way to success in art but to take off your coat, grind paint, and work like a digger on the railroad, all day and everyday. (Ralph Waldo Emerson).
The art of the pen is to rouse the inward vision . . . That is why the poets, who spring imagination with a word or a phrase, paint lasting pictures. (George Meredith).
The pen is mightier than the sword. (Edward Bulwer-Lytton)

What is the Artist's duty? . . .
To praise and celebrate,
Because his love is great,
The lively miracle
Of Universal Beauty.
~ William Allingham.

But words are things and a small drop of ink,
Falling like dew, upon a thought produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps, millions think.
~ George Gordon Lord Byron.

By Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Every day brings a ship,
Every ship brings a word;
Well for those who have no fear,
Looking seaward well assured
That the word the vessel brings
Is the word they wish to hear.

The Postman
Author Unknown.

The whistling postman swings along,
His bag is deep and wide,
And messages from all the world
Are bundled up inside.

The postman's walking up our street.
Soon he'll ring my bell.
Perhaps there'll be a letter stamped
In Asia. Who can tell?

If All the World
Author Unknown.

If all the world were apple pie
And all the sea were ink
And all the trees were bread and cheese,
What would we have to drink?
It's enough to make an old man
Scratch his head and think!
