Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


The living lesson stole into the heart,
With more prevailing force than dwells in words.
Thomson.—Liberty, Part II.

There is a lesson in each flower,
A story in each stream and bower;
In every herb on which you tread,
Are written words which, rightly read,
Will lead you from earth’s fragrant sod,
To hope, and holiness, and God.
Anonymous.—From Adams’s Quotations.
