Ella Wheeler Wilcox Quotes



"Conversation" God and I in space alone . . . and nobody else in view . . . "And where are all the people, Oh Lord" I said, "the earth below and the sky overhead and the dead that I once knew?" "That was a dream," God smiled and said: "The dream that seemed to be true; there were no people living or dead; there was no earth, and no sky overhead, there was only myself in you." "Why do I feel no fear?" I asked, "meeting you here in this way? For I have sinned, I know full well and is there heaven and is there hell, and is this Judgement Day?" "Nay, those were but dreams" the Great God said, "dreams that have ceased to be. There are no such things as fear and sin; there is no you . . . you never have been. There is nothing at all but me.".

What can be said in New Year rhymes, That's not been said a thousand times? The new years come, the old years go, We know we dream, we dream we know. We rise up laughing with the light, We lie down weeping with the night. We hug the world until it stings, We curse it then and sigh for wings. We live, we love, we woo, we wed, We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead. We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear, And that's the burden of a year.
